    Hi

    Found this guy in the bottom of the bucket which had some live rock in.

    Good or bad?
    Sump or tank or sushi ?

    Martin,

    Could be a Mithrax crab , but it is difficult to see from the photo whether those pincers are sharp or rounded, so I'd agree with Chas to rather sump it.
