crabs in my acropora

I've just picked up an acropora and as I was about to place it in my DT I noticed that there were two crabs hiding amongst the branches. I tried getting them out with tweezers but jabbing around in there I was scared of damaging the coral. Can't really identify them but I have the coral in my QT tank. I'm wondering about any techniques that I can use to draw them out and get the coral in the DT as soon as possible.

Thanks Steve

Yes, that's it. And they seem to be harmless so I guess it can go in the DT. I tried searching for hitchhiker crabs but none matched my two in the branches. Sometimes the net can be to big a place to search. Thanks
