Should i be worried?

So last night I found a blue banded hermit crab inside the "head" of one if my sacrophyton. I removed it and it went back, then again, then again, and then I realized that there were little brown specs on the sacrophyton. Now I may be wrong however I think that this hermit has laid eggs on my coral. Should I be worried for my coral. This tank is a reef tank not a hermit crab sanctuary (I'd like to keep all my critters but the corals will have priority)

Thanks

Don't know what happened but in the morning the eggs weren't there. Sometimes it just works itself out

Some of your tank inhabitants might have found it to be a delicacy lol
