    Default emerald crab

    I had a post 6-8 months ago about bubble algae and it seemed like it was a 50/50 split on emerald crabs. Like an idiot I didn't take everybody's advice and just stabbed them. Now they are back. I guess my big question is are emerald crabs harmful too anything else? If not I will give one a try. Thanks Andy
