looks like a fan worm, if you tap the rock, does it hide?

Hi Werner,

Not very clear from the pic , but does it look like a perforated calcerous structure ?

If so , these are a type of Bryozoan - Iodyctium Sanguineum (see pic below). Unfortunately , they don't do well in our tanks at all . I have quite a few of these on my LR , but they have all turned white . They are normally bright purple, red or light blue in colour

No I dont think he would.BUT,I say that with caution,with crabs you just never know.They are scavengers and opportunists mostly.To them an easy meal is an easy meal,whatever it is.Rule of thumb......get rid of the crab!!!!;)
