A very small three striped damsel, two clowns, and one royal gramma.

There is a part of me that is hoping that the porcelain crab parts that I saw are in fact a molt. But I can't find him anywhere and it looked like more than a molt.

Yes I did water changes after the deaths and there weren't any changes in salinity or other parameters.

No other deaths.

Aren't emerald crabs and porcelain less sensitive than starfish and certain snails?

I don't recall if a water change happened before they died. They hide all the time so it is really hard to know when they even died.

So as some may have expected, the porcelain crab showed up after all! He just molted. I haven't seen the emerald crab so I'm assuming that he is dead.
