The Acropora Crab also known as the Trapezia Crab or the Pocillopora crab is a commensal crab that lives within the branches of pocillopora or acropora coral. They live in a symbiotic relationship with their host coral and feed on detritus that falls on the coral, particles that get trapped within polyps, and as well the coral’s secreted mucus. They also help protect the coral from invaders and fend off predators. They should be housed in an aquarium with SPS coral for them to survive. They may eat meaty food particles that lands on the coral, but won't need to be provided a staple diet.
