My Emerald crab....the freeloader!

My one emerald crab is sooo lazy. I hardly ever see him cleaning the rocks. But when I feed the fish he is right there to pick up the scraps. Oh and he love to sit and eat my caluerpa. Just not the GREEN HAIR or BUBBLE ALGEA I bought him for. Oh well, I have two ECs, at least one works, busy little thing.
Has anyone else had this type of observation? Just wondering. Just looking for something to talk about.


I just bought one today to deal with my minor Calurpa problem. Hopefully he is related to yours and will tear it apart :)

My rather large Emerald scraped all the corraline off my rock at one point...finally growing back, but never touches what I want him to eat...
