    Crabs are my Neon Clove Polyps

    What the heck!!! My dang emerald crab just ate my entire plug (about 7 heads) of my Neon Clove Polyps. Those were my favorite coral I had too.

    Emeralds have been known to eat, or at least destroy, soft corals. I've even herd of them nipping chunks out of sps.
    Major bummer. Sorry to hear that.

    I think it's something with the clove. My urchin ate mine and I'm wondering what clove tastes like now.

    I could reverse that and say it is urchins. JJ's urchin went through and tasted all of my corals then found out he likes chalices best.

    If only urchin didn't taste like smoked poop we could have our revenge.

    Went emerald-less this time lest the "clean up crew" become the "demolition crew" and then have to have a crab cookout at the house. I live in the ghetto so you never know who shows up to a crab cookout around here...
