Return of the (coral) body snatchers...

Somebody in my tank is munching the GSP. I suspect the Sally Lightfoot crab but I have recently added a bunch of snails and have blue and red leg hermits also.... Any ideas?

I don't think any of my fish could have made such a visable impact overnight. But the rainsford goby and scooter blenny pick at food off the rocks and walls of the tank.

My vote is on the crab if it demise of the coral can be correlated with the addition of the crab.

My vote is with the crab too, they can become voracious coral eaters once they are mature. You might want to look into returning it.
