I was looking at an Acropora Millepora colony at the store today and saw it had an acro crab within the branches.

Does this crab happen to take care of red bugs and flatworms etc? All the pests we dose for to prevent when buying from fish stores?

:confused:

Thought I would ask! Thanks in advance!

Depends if it is a good crab or a bad crab? If it has hairy legs and is brown it is a bad crab and hurting the coral. If it is a little white guy with sun glasses on (no I am not kidding) then he is a good crab and is very helpful.

Hm, I'll have to go back for a second visit. It was very hard to tell which one in the link he was. I know he was yellow but so was the colony. I know he wasn't hairy. I'll go check back tomorrow.
