I dip all my corals that go into my system pretty well... how did this guy come through??

Any ideas on what it is? It has bright neon pink spots!

Maybe a pompom crab? The anemones it holds might have gotten killed by the dip if it ever had them

The crab looked semi crushed by something before I removed it from the mushroom it was grabbing on to so the little guy probably won't make it... didn't see any pom poms (or claws rather) on him :(. He looks pretty cool tho (and nems were never dipped).
