It looks like an emerald crab, but it is kind of hard to tell.

I'm doing this one by memory, so it might be wrong... but acros have a crab that can live in them and has a symbiotic relationship with them...kinda like a goby and pistol shrimp, but cooler.

+1^ I just ended a crab id thread that ended up being that little guy I forget the scientific name but I'm pretty sure you have an acropora crab..could you give a little description of him since he's so camera shy (thats how mine is too..only reaches out of a hole for food and that's it haha
