What do the claws look like, pointy or with spoons at the end?
Kinda looks like an emerald or a gorilla, but the pic is fuzzy.
the spot he's in makes it hard to tell, he's really small and his legs look like they have a red and white pattern to them as well as white markings on his face. I'm not sure about the claws but if it helps he seems to be scraping and eating stuff off of the live rock. The only coral in the tank is a single small xenia frag added recently nowhere near his little cave.

The fish are staring at me with hungry eyes.

Are their claws rounded or pointy? Just wondering.
I had a few that were red and had pointy claws but they seem to come in lots of different looks. I kept an eye on mine until I saw it eating by waving the little flags one night.

Oh wow thank you for all the info guys I appreciate itit, I think I'll try and get him out of his little cave and sump him. Mainly because I wanna see how much bigger he'll grow and for some more time to ID him, really curious as to what he is lol
 

Have you ever had a reef tank with no sump and how did it go?
