i also have a question about my emerald crab. every time my fish swimms by him he tries to reach out and pinch him. is this just another affect of the tank being to small? do i have a more aggresive emerald crab?should i worry about hermitts and shrimp? is it dangerous to the yellow tang?
Yes move it to the 55gal. That is or could be the stress factor. A 20 is way to small for a tang. As for the crab because they are in a confined space everytime the fish swims past him its intruding on the crabs space. Its like me walking in your bedroom and taking a nap on your bed. You would pinch me to for it. Probaly do more then pinch. But you get the idea LOL
