This crab climbed out of the live rock. Can anyone help me with his identification?
Thank you.

Although typically green, appears to be an emerald crab which is an algae/bubble algae eater and often on live rock from an LFS and is very similar to coral crab
I dont trust these around zoa and can be placed in your sump if it becomes a nuisance around coral

Thanks to all for your help. I'm sending a photo of his claws for better identification, but I'll probably put him out.
