Personally I would try to remove it. Some are harmless and others are a disaster.
Ask Billy Ocean how much damage one of these small Crabs can do.

There was a small Crab on one of his Plated Montis and it gradually ate most of the Algae from the Coral.

Buy some of that Coral RX stuff and dip your sps in it for 5 or so mins. You'd be amazed by all the little bastards that come out of it. Last time I used it a wee crab came out of the coral as well.

I recently got an acro with a little crab in it and thought it might be harmless however two days later he was outa there and as Anto said I had a very large monti and A tiny crab decided to munch away at it I nicknamed him a lawnmower crab :lol: :lol: to get him out I had to remove the Monti and Pull him by the claws the little hairy crab.

I tend to remove anything I can altough still yet to try the new dip.
