    It's not the best photo, but I'm hoping you can ID this wee crab who recently showed up in my Opae tank. She is so cute. Many thanks.

    So I'm going to have to move her into her own tank in the future. Bless her heart. She's going to be bored lol.

    Update: Little Toot caught two of my Opae. They got away. Even with all the protein, she wants a fresh catch, and I truly can't blame her. This is a new batch of opae added to the tank today which excited her tremendously. So off I went to Fairbanks and bought her a tank. Transferring her was easy enough. She stayed in her castle, a big carved rock with her cave, and I moved the whole thing into her new tank. Once settled, the first thing she wanted was food lol. So I dropped in pieces of algae waver, dried shrimp and bloodworms.She is feasting away. I feel sorry for her though. She is all by herself. What can I add to her tank that she can't kill, but will keep her company?

    Mine didn't bother anemones (kept with condy & rbta), feather dusters, snails, hermits, or corals- just shrimp, other crab species, and small, timid fish. They also cannibalized when separated into their own tank, so I would not recommend a second one. That does leave a decent selection, though.
