    Yeah I was wondering if they left. How long can they go without eating? Do you know?

    I think the new one I got left the acro a little bit ago because I haven't seen him, and they sent him with a small pocci frag, so maybe that's what he wanted and went wandering....

    The resident crab was in the acro up until this evening.

    I'm going to order an acro and a pocci.

    They will find their way to food and another coral so I think they should be fine until you replace the coral. Do tear the coral apart to make sure they left.

    I have had them go wandering in my tank for weeks without choosing a coral. I assume they can still catch particulates out of the water column to eat.

    Okay, here is the new acro! I think I would pick it out under normal circumstances...LOL

    Not as big as I was hoping, but 4 inches is pretty good. The one I have now is about 6.
