    I picked up some aqua cultured live rock from petco where my girlfriend works and noticed a pom pom crab when I got home. Its neat to see what you get with live rock.

    Nice find!

    Isn't that the kind of crab that keeps little pieces of anenome on each of it's pinchers?

    Looks like it

    what an awesome find!

    Especially considering its from Petco, my local one has the worst looking rock.

    I was excited when I saw the first crab but when I saw 2 I couldn't believe it. I went back to petco to let the manager know because I didn't want anyone to get in trouble bur he said to keep them. I'm lucky I guess, this petco gets really nice aqua cultred rock.

    Great finds. I love live rock and seeing what new animals show up.
