aww cool!!! I'm totally catching pics of our lake's live forms when I get my new camera!!!!!! xD I'll cry if I see a non-native fish in there. and being me I might catch and rehome the darn things. it's a danger to our nature to release non-native critters :/ turtles, too. goldfish. sometimes danios...

at least you get the cool stuff =D

That's awesome! A pet store on long island here has small versions of these guys for a price of $2.69 and he has one larger than the one you have pictured, for $5. The larger one is ornage/black/and yellow and I think he has it labeled as a bumble bee fresh water crab.

We're thinking of having a crab if we get another tank. Not entirely sure what they can lie with. Obviously not Bettas. Surely they'd claw at their pretty fins. He's super duper cute!

My crayfish used to climb one of the driftwood decors I had in the tank at the tippy top, he would hold his claws open and wait to catch a fish at the top. I soon took that decor out and fed him his normal sinking pellets.
