    Acro Crab

    My crab moved from its birdsnest to a coral that I got from Johnny Rock. Im wondering if the crab is causing harm to the coral because you can see the polyps retracted.

    Cool

    I doubt it will harm the coral at all. hopefully the coral will get used to it.

    The corals that have these commensal crabs in actually end up looking and doing better than one without because the crab grooms the coral and keeps it clean.
