crimson crab has a friend

my crimson crab must move very slow cause there's a featherduster actually growing off his shell. :o i know he's alive because i see him moving around at night but really! i don't know how or y it's there, it's just small but i thought that featherdusters had to have a hole in a rock to anchor in.

They'll anchor to anything.

Crabs make great hosts for so many things because of the hard exoskeleton. That feather duster will one day have a permanent residence wherever the crab molts. I have found crabs that have coraline algae all over their legs.

Do you know if this is a tiny community fan or a larger one?
