I'll go through whats on the list in the next couple of weeks and start a fair few topics :) I think it will be good if we could add a couple sections within this forum for "Algae's, Corals, Inverts, Pests, Filter Feeders" most of the time people know what sort of thing it is, just not exactly what it is.

I'll have a look and see what we can do to make sub-boards or something like that.

Is there a wiki module for this forum software? Might be easier to maintain than forum threads.

In the meantime, and anyway, it's worth mentioning for those who've forgotten, we do have [ wiki ] BBCode tags.

These, if you know there's going to be a wikipedia article on something, you can just wrap terms in these tags and they'll become links to the wikipedia article, without having to look them up. They basically cause the parser to get the first result from a wikipedia search, it doesn't always work, but is still handy.

How about hitch hiker crabs? I have had a red eyed beasty which I imagine came in as an egg or as a tiny crab on a rock with a coral on it. It grew to about 35 mm diameter and killed an awful lot of stuff before I sat up at night and caught the wretched thing. Would have been interesting to have ID'd it. It had pincers like bolt cutters.

Difficult to ID it precisely from that, but pretty well the same. The colour, shape and pincers look spot on. Had a fondness for zoas.....May he rest in peace  8D

Ah, for some reason (take your pick between senility or plain stupidity) I didn't see the top pick when I first looked. But yes, that IS the chap. Thanks for that.
