Black Mithrax crab pictures

  1. I was amazed that I caught this guy last night. I was about to do a coral dip
    to save the coral, and who happened to be hanging out on the backside of that
    coral? :D

    I put him in a small dish trying to decide whether to listen to the advice of
    those that opposed this pretty guy, and he hung on the edge of the dish for at
    least 15 minutes out of water.

    Finally I dropped him into my refugium for now.

    In a dish:

    Out of water:

    In my refugium:

    Note the shape of the claw in this pictures.

    A crab in the hand is worth two in the reef:

    Awesome pics - thanks for sharing!

    Crabs ... <shudder> ... not in my 'fuge, LOL. He actually is a cute
    little guy, though!

    How's the coral?

  3. According to Eric Borneman, it wasn't Brown Jelly Disease after all. He's doing a
    few follow up questions with me, and hopefully we can figure it out. There is a
    picture of the coral being dipped in my Personal Log on my site.
