    What do Emerald Crabs do? Will they harm any of the snails, fish or corals?

    they eat lots of algae, you can see the scrapes where they've eaten it off the rock.
    they're great.

    mike, as Bram said, they are great. They dont bother the snails at all. Spend their time moving around the rock eating algae.

    They are a little shy. Mine dont stay out in the open much where they can be seen but every two or three days they make a short appearance.

    You got yourself a good mix of critters there Pascal. Isn't it great to see living critters in your tank.
