would love to, but will probably find that I need another liscence to do that, might put down a few crab pots and find out what they come up with, put them in a 100 g tank and see how much they'll eat, but this sort of research has to stand up in court, so many rules and excepted protocols.

Every one will be asking what your water paremeters tank size filtration are etc. so be ready, but it might be an idea to look through the archives and see if anyone else has posted a similar question as these may have photo's, which might tell you what your litle guy has.
