Yes it does have dark claws on the tips. it sees to be a brownish green color. It is about 1/2" across maybe just under. The tank has been up and running for almost 5 years. As I stated the LR came from my 55g Reef set up which I started about 10 years ago. I sold the 55g and most LR and all that went with it due to a vision problem, hubby was worried I might get hurt since I had corals, due to bad reactions I have from eating shrimp and other shellfish. So he got me the 12g and I used some of the LR and LS from the 55g before I sold it. For the past 4-5 years it (the 12G) has been a FOWLR and I just got the pep on Thursday w/ a few turbos.
Right now it just has an Eclipse hood that came with the tank and stand but I just ordered new lights and a HOB filter as well as a Korila PH and they are all due to come in on Thursday. If it is a bad reef crab, how would I go about getting it out, could I did the LR in a hyper water bath w/o hurting any growth on th LR, it is a huge piece, and would hate to lose it.
How long do crabs live, this thing has to be at least 10 years in the LR and I have never added any other LR since the tank was set up.
