Thats what it looks like but she's the only decorator in the tank and I got her when I started out my tank which was about 6 months ago ? Is it possible she is having babies ?

She's the only crab in the tank other than the hermits and only 4 fish none of which are the same species of fish so who's eggs would she steal ? Can they reproduce by them selves ? Here's everything in my tank just incase

Fox face rabbit fish
Blenny
File fish
Sand sifting goby
Decorator crab
7 different types of hermits
1 sea biscuit
1 star fish
4 snails ( stawberry cone, turbo, Mexican turbo and another one I don't no the name of )
And a Pygmy octopus although they can't get to each other

Any ideas ?
