    Hi saw this little guy lurking in a medium sized Acro colony this evening.

    Decided to catch him out and introduce him to MASA and his first ever photo shoot.

    So what's your verdict, friend or foe?

    That green crab is definitely an emerald crab. They are actually a very good thing to have, they eat bubble algae and green hair algae. Is the green one the same as the two crabs before?
