    Hi,

    Have live rock curing in plastic buckets before I start my first marine and noticed this in the containers.

    Cannot trace the creature now....I need to transfer the live rock to my DT which is running for 3 days now but identified 2 small snails and a hermit crab that was living in the live rock.Must I keep them in a seperate bucket for now or transfer them with the live rock?

    I would put them in with the live rock. Many might not agree, but thats just my opinion.

    Regarding the crab you found.. I think its some sort of Stone crab. Juveniles are known hitchikers.

    see below link, maybe you would be able to put a positive ID on it as you have a clearer vision of it.
