    New Hitchiker crab...Will he survive?

    It is so small...

    About 3 mm size...

    He looks to be in a 'mucus' buble.

    New baby?

    It comes from the Vanuatu Rocks since I had nothing beside
    that in the tank and they are curing at the moment...



    Do you think he will live?...

    It looks, to me, like that the mucus bubble is in fact fungus - is it moving at all? I have to say that I've never seen a live crab in a mucus bubble
