    Second picute of smaller crab

    Bought a coral today that has two crabs on it, but not sure if I should put them into the tank as well. Please ID these, as well if you have a link with the pictures and kinds please forward them.
    Thanks...

    I have one identical to this fellow. He came with my newest acro. Not a problem at all. He never leaves his coral, just sits around waiting for food to float by. I don't know what type of crab it is but I really don't think you have anything to worry about.

    It's an acro crab. These guys are great to have!! They keep the coral that it calls home clean. I try to get as many as I can whenever I'm coral hunting. You can't place it in a coral but rather it will decide which coral it wants because different acro crabs live in different types of corals.
