Emerald crab turned lumberjack??

So one of my emerald crabs has made a habit of climbing up my kenya tree. He doesn't seem to be picking at it, but the kenya tree doesn't appear to enjoy its presence. Should I just move the kenya tree ? Why would it do this ? Sorry for the poor pic quality, I used my phone and had to use a flashlight to illuminate it to avoid glare from the flash.

The crab it is probably just picking off algae. Moving the kenya tree won't matter the crab will find it again if it is in the same tank.

Yes, there is little to be done about it other than build a fence around the coral. He won't cause any permanent harm...just doing his job.

Yea the coral is fully open now and looks no worse for wear. Just thought it was odd that it would continue to climb on it.

They are very bold. They seem to climb on everything looking for algae.
