I had a cobalt blue lobster special ordered at my lfs. Sadly, the one that arrived was missing 3 legs and both claws. Then, as I was looking around, unlabeled, hidden in a top shelf tank, I saw a fully grown Cobalt Blue Lobster. It was in perfect condition. Apparently its been there for MONTHS and nobody realized it... Snagged it for a cool $27. Pictures soon - once its acclimated and I turn the lights back on

Nice price, I hope you enjoy it! Are you keeping it with fish or shrimp, or is it by itself? I heard these can be kinda brutal. Would love to see pictures, I used to have a half blue, half red with white spots crayfish, someone caught it in a stream and gave it to me, it was awesome. Kept it in a 10 gallon for years until it finally died.

Its in my 30g with 1 African chichlid (Will be rehoming it soon), two Florida flag fish (rehomed when they get too big), a clown pleco, two corys, a siamese algea eater (rehoming soon) and a Mexican dwarf crawfish that has a very small cave to stay safe in

Keep an eye out on your bottom dwellers until you re-home them, this guy should be VERY happy in a 30 gallon, that is a lot of room to roam.

The corys are very small and stick to a slab of granite on the opposite side of the tank (base of a piece of driftwood) but yeah, I will be very cautious.

Sadly I didn't have much time to acclimate him to water parameters. He lept from the bag and into the tank... And immediately went for the cave I made just for him

Mine is still a juvi but he's doubled in size since I got him/her. My entire family loves him. We named him Mr. Pinchy. I'm going to post a video of him in a moment.

Anyways- They are SUPER AGGRESSIVE lol. Be prepared to lose a fish or two if he gets his claws on them and also... watch your fingers! Mine goes straight for my hand, or landscape tools the second they hit the water. It's quite amusing to watch.
