    Cool! I agree you shouldn't have issues with the crab and calcerous algae though. Although I've found it can be tough to maintain long term in a reef on it's own. Especially if nutrient levels get low. The crab may help take out it's competition though, so that could even be good.

    I have some halemda & my emeralds have never touched it. I wouldnt worry about feeding specific to them, from what I have seen (2 in a 75g), they have no problems finding plenty to eat and are always at work.
