2 critters guy's

This is a pic of a small crab that very hard to get a pic of. Shy you see. Only comes out when lights are off....stay's in his little hole in L/R. Any idea's as to what kinda crab it is. Other pic is mabye bristle worm I ain't sure...that why I'm asking you guys. Comes out of the L/R but any movement and it's away. Trying to get better pic.

The first pic almost looks like a Mantis shrimp. Really hard to tell from the pic.

Second pic looks like a Xanthid 'Reef crab'. Possibly Atergstis sp. Not usually reef safe.

Here's a pic of an Atergatis floridus:



HTH,

It looks like a segmented worm. Like a centipede almost but as I said any movement and it disappears back into it's hole in the rock.
