    I bought an emerald crab for my tank about two or three months ago. He has always been hiding in my rock work and only really out at night. this afternoon I caught a glimpse of him out in the open and noticed that he isn't as green as he was when I introduced him into my tank. He is not a whitish green, but definitely not that same emerald shade he was in the beginning.

    Is this common and something to worry about?

    They do vary in colour. Even change colour as they grow. They can be a tad lighter after they shed.
