ReefCleaners micro decorator crab?

I really like the looks of the micro decorator crab that @johnmaloney sells, but I can't find much info online, so I'm looking for some personal experience from different people who've kept them.

How big do these get? Carapace and leg size, or an estimate. Is "micro" just compared to other decorators, or do they actually stay tiny? Porcelain-sized?

Are they at all aggressive to anything?

Do they move around much, or just pick a favorite spot?

Will they leave LPS and rock flower anemones alone?

Do they eat anything other than algae?

They can't climb glass, right?

I know they'll sometimes decorate with zoas, here's a few questions about that.

Do they tend to remove the polyp intact?

Do the zoas have a good chance of surviving on the crab?

Do they ever drop the zoas?

Do they just take one polyp from the colony, or do they tear up the whole thing?

Do they primarily stick to macroalgae if offered plenty of that to use?

Does the ratio of macroalgae to zoas in the tank affect what they want to use as camo?
