Not sure about what it's called, but it's been on the boards several times and the black pincer is a sure sign that it's not good for the tank any ways. Good catch and i hope that's it.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

picture is blurry, but it appears he only has 1 claw?

the black, sharp claw is a tell tale sign of a problem but maybe something else picked on him?
