Funny little guy
I ordered my crab on Memorial Day weekend, came later that week. He spent a couple weeks in hiding, I was hoping he was not a goner (he was stuck on a ups truck all day in 105 degree plus conditions- they even packed the order with extra ice packs) well I acclimated him fast put him into the tank and he disappeared. Now he has finally surfaced, he swims around the tank, and is perfectly healthy!

I named him Charlie.
Charlie, my horseshoe crab, Arrived in perfect health. He's a bit clumsy but he's perfect. He's about the size of a half dollar! and way more active than any of my fish. I love him!!

Good sand sifters
I have two of these in a 90g each around 1.5" in size. One of them loves to swim backflips through the tank for about 30 minutes each night before going back to the sand bed.
