ohh... k... just dont try and pluck it out ..from what ive heard you'll spread that stuff all over which prolly what happened in my tank. i had like a couple hundred break out and i was very frustrated, and i think it was because i tried to manually remove it. i think you'll be good to go. your crabs will stumble upon it eventually.

that is the craziest stuff I've ever seen. My LFS has a hardcore breakout of that stuff all over their live rock. It looks like something you see in a betta bowl!
