If you wanna catch your crabs there is an easy way to do this if you don't mind taking out the rock they happen to be on. I thought catching the crabs would be a difficult task, but I find that 99% of the time they will latch down on the rock they are on, refusing to let go. If you do it fast enough, they don't even attempt to jump off. I have caught many crabs this way. I have corals attached to atleast half the rock I have, so I waited for them to be on a piece they wouldn't disturb the rest of the tank. Took me no time.
