    I know a porcelain crab when I see one. I can ID those and know for a fact that they are safe. I don't know that this is safe so........... You can spin my answers any way that you want them. I've said my peace.

    I know a fiddler crab when I see one, specifically this type of fiddler out of the 90some species of fiddler crabs, because I have had TWO of them before. How is what you may not know about this crab discredit anyone's ID of it because you aren't sure about it. Does this happen in all the ID threads lol

    Shu if you decide you don't want it you can send it my way I think they're adorable and would love to have some more of them lol

    Well to end everything I woke up this morning to find the crab dead. I snaped some more pics for better ID.
