    I finaly found what has been eating my zoas and monti caps. This crab has eating a piece of monticap about 1" x 3" and a patch of zoas about 5" x 4" man I thought I would never find what was eating my corals. Good thing I did or in a month or so I would be FOWLR.

    Here's the pics for ID

    That's one nasty looking crab. Maybe you could post it on Marine Depot's forums for Ron Shimek?
