    Additional Information & Description

    I picked up this emerald crab a few weeks ago, to help with a little algae issue. Just happened to catch it out in the open on a gorgonian.

    A little more info:

    The Emerald Crab is considered reef safe...but like all crabs, your mileage may vary. They are well known for the consumption of bubble algae...which thankfully I have none for it to eat.

    Good shot of the crab on the gorg! That's a small emerald....I think I have some bubble algae much bigger than that tiny tyke.
