remove by hand or suck it out with a turkey baster. Don;t break the bubble or it will only get worse. Or try getting an emerald crab if you want crabs in your tank. I hear they will eat it (maybe!!)

thanks. good thing you told me not to pop them. i will take the rock out and remove them out of the tank. is this the only way to control them? also, do you know if an emerald crab is ok with red legged hermits and a cleaner shrimp?

They should. I got rid of mine by getting an emerald crab. Have not seen any since
