I would say that about 3 out of every 4 wild or macro cultured acro colonies I have bought have a resident commensal crab. It's one of the many cool things about keeping a reef tank. Certainly they do no damage. I see no compelling evidence that colonies with are necessarily healthier than those without however. Apparently I'm the 1%


Got back into the hobby ..... planned to keep it simple ..... yeah, right ..... clearly I need a new plan! Pet peeve: anemones host clowns; clowns do not host anemones!

Current Tank Info: 450 Reef; 120 refugium; 60 Frag Tank, 30 Introduction tank; multiple QTs
