That's a bimac!! Plus the grabbing and the squirting of water, Thomas used to do that to me when he wanted to be fed, it really sounds like you got a bimac!

Are there 2 blue false eyespots, one on each side?

Also, Vulgaris usually have white markings/splotches all over their body...

yea hes a bimac then cause he doesnt have a white spots unless he is flashing his colors!! also, how big will a bimace get because he has leg that are about 3 inches and a mantle that is a tad bit smaller than a golfball... i hope i didnt get an older one ... but oh well.... also how do you get them off when they cling on to you

I rubbed the out side megas's skin when he grabbed me
seems he hated to be touched on anything but the sucker side
rubbing a finger gently over his eye also made him stop biting me

Hmmm, that's interesting. Ollie loved to be gently rubbed between and above her eyes - she seemed to expcect it after every play session.

Fiddler crabs are live in either brackish or salt water... the LFS will tell you they can live in freshwater and they will even display them in freshwater, but their natural habitat will either be brackish or salt water. So, they should be fine for you new ceph. friend.
