    I recently purchased a big rock full of zoas. I now foud a little crab living between them. I noticed that my zoas are starting to fade away slowly, could it be this little guest eating them? Please help.

    show us a pic of what the zoas look like. That looks to me like a gorilla crab which is indeed a predator but not sure it would eat zoas ....

    I doubt that it is the crag eating the zoa. Most likely hiding in there, eating detritus out from between the polyps.

    Look around for some other zoa predator.

    Anyway, I do not like unknown crabs. As you do not know what size they may become.
