Anybody know what this is?

I had something show up in my tank today and I don't know what it is or where it came from. It looks like a yellow spider. It is about the size of a dime with long spindly jointed legs. I can't get a real good look at it because of where it is in the tank. It seems to be eating the molted exoskeleton of my shrimp. I can't find anything that looks like it anywhere. Any ideas?

It has longer more spindly legs. Those are small and compact. Mine is larger, built more like a Daddy longlegs... for lack of a better discription. No luck getting a pic, to hard to see.

It seems to have disappeared on me. Maybe back in the rock. It doesn't seem to be anytime of crab or spider that I can identify. More translucent than the spiders I have seen pics of, the legs of the arrow crab are right but the body is too large. I am wondering if it is some juvenille form of something. Any thoughts along those lines?

You did see the picture of the long-legged species in the link, right?
