I had this anemone crab in my tank a few months ago, not sure if he's still alive or not but I do know he managed to kill the RTBA he's on in the pic.'s :twised: Taken with a Nikon DSLR D40. Don't know what pic. I like better so I'll let it be chosen for me.

Ha, ha, naked hermie! I briefly saw one of mine lost without his shell. He found another pretty quick though. Getting a photo like yours is priceless.

Ok, I might as well have a go. It's out of focus, hair algae all over and basically shot on the fly with a cheap camera, but maybe a candidate for the humour category if there is such a thing. A small blue legged hermie hitching a ride on my monster white spotted hermit. I had to remove and return the white spot to the LFS eventually since he got way too destructive. He was quite the opportunist but one of the best sandsifters I've had in the tank. He tried to make a meal of a smaller hermie more than once, but could never get his monster claw into the shell far enough to get the crafty little guys out. The pencil urchin in the background did become a meal for the 'Herminator' before I removed him.

Not the greatest shot.. didn't look so blurry on the LCD but I thought I'd enter the contest regardless.
