I think this is a gorilla crab, yes?

I am trying to learn my crabs. Found it on my Stylophora. From reading other posts, I believe it is a gorilla crab. Did I get it right?

Just out of curiosity, is it bothering anything else in the tank?

Yep. I have found a few over the years. When I upgraded a 40B to a 75g I found a big black nasty killer looking crab in my rock. It had stollen a lot of coral frags over the 4 years it must have been hiding in there. Thing was about 2 3/4" wide, smooth black shell and large claws.
