A friend of mine bought a tank and had these little lobster type things and some little shrimp. Not sure exactly what they are. I took some crappy iPhone pics, hopefully someone might know what they are.

The lobsters

The photos of the shrimp are not very good, they have red and whit spots on the body and a red band around the claws.

the shrimp are boxer shrimp, god knows what them other things are, probably some sort of live rock hitchhiker.

definetly not a pistol/mantis shrimp, looks more lobster, cray like as you say.

Nah. Funny if they had to "take it back to the office for testing" still.

Yes, they look like baby crays to me too. Grow them up and then eat them, win, win.
