Thanks Leslie, pocilloporid corals, would that include pink birdsnest? That's the coral that I obtained, but the crab was actually in the bottom of the bag.

And should I try to place the crab into the coral?

Any help you could give me would be much appreciated as I've never had a good crab before.

Thanks again
