Are you sure the crab is not a molt. They look like the real thing.

Heh, yeah blennys are characters and always interested in their surrounding environment. As for the emerald crab, are you sure it isn't just a molt? It is hit or miss. I've had various blennys mix quite well yet have had even lawnmower blennys attack and kill other blennys within minutes. I think 150g is more than enough room as long as you have plenty of rockwork for them to escape each other.
