    Started my tank about 6 months ago and saw a small little crab leg sticking out a hole. didn't worry about it much cause it was tiny. however a month ago a find this, It seemed dead so took it out (didn't move and confirmed that it was dead) and flushed it.

    However about a week ago when feeding i saw the same crab (only slightly bigger) come running out to crab flakes.

    Now wondering whether or not i should remove it or allow it to stay.

    It seemed to be in my tank since about February this year without any issues but it is growing bigger and that's worrying.

    It looks like a gorilla crab. Notice the black tips at the end of its pincers. I would definitely flush this one unless you have a sump.
