Well, after doing some research here on various threads regarding problem crabs, i discovered i have TWO members of the xanthidae family tearing my polyps up and eating my smaller fish friends...my question is:
what do i do with the little thugs once i catch em' ? Feel bad chucking them out...any suggestions???
Alright! Well, i rigged a trap for the monster crab...i took some food wrapped in mesh and set it in the bottom of a glass and set it right by the little suckers den (which was under a piece of live rock)...literally ten minutes after my lights turned off, i checked my tank, and there he was in the bottom of the glass. Did not have the heart to chuck em'
so he now resides in my sump. Now for the little emerald...
