'The Florist' (Natural History Episode 15) Once again we return to observe a cryptic red decorator crab (Leptopsia setirostris); this time living upon, and decorated with, zoanthid polyps (Zoanthus sociatus), close cousins to both sea anemones and corals. Zoanthus in Latin literally means 'animal flower'. The species name sociatus refers to the fact they these flower animals live socially in dense groupings of identical polyps. Decorator crabs demonstrate a remarkably prescient instinct to be able process the information required to successfully camouflage themselves to match their preferred habitat.Unlike the typically fast-scuttling crabs of the mainstream, decorator crabs move at a deliberately slow pace to reduce being noticed. This particular decorator crab species boasts a brilliant red exoskeleton that it has disguised with the zoanthids. The crab has carefully nipped individual zoanthid polyps from a larger colony and placed them upon its carapace (back) where they attach down on their own and continue growing. My experience suggests that it takes at least two days for a polyp to begin attaching down to new substrate. I have yet to observe the crab going through the whole process of zoanthid 'decoration', but clearly it is a very patient animal. The crab uses it's small claws to pick at and remove pieces of detritus between the polyps. The animal nature of the zoanthids becomes especially apparent when the movements of the crab cause the polyps to close up in ...

Purple Forest (Natural History Episode 7) This week's video features an aquascape comprised of the beautiful purple macro algae Asparagopsis taxiformis. However, if you pay close attention to the left 1/3 of the screen, you'll notice something... moving with claws... Nestled amongst the algae is a perfectly camouflaged decorator crab (Microphrys bicornuta). Keep paying attention... at 26 seconds into the clip you'll notice a tiny isopod crustacean float by in the current and descend helicopter-style right onto the crab's back. The unsuspecting isopod has no idea that it has landed upon an algae covered beast. Furthermore, it appears that the crab is not aware of the unexpected visitor until the isopod begins to explore its decorated exoskeleton. 50 seconds into the clip the isopod meets its fate with a few swift snatches of the crab's claws. Without missing a beat, the crab continues scavenging amongst the rocks and algae. And life on the reef goes on... Decorator crabs are amazing creatures in that they pick up pieces of their surrounding habitat and place them on their carapace (back, exoskeleton) in order to blend into their surroundings. Decorator crabs that live amongst sponges decorate with sponges, those that live amongst zoanthids use zoanthids, and so on. This instinctual logic is truly remarkable. The crab in the video has attached small pieces of the Asparagopsis upon itself, and as a result is all but indistinguishable from its surroundings. Music, Video, and ...
Filmed 1986 with old Beta movie camera at Ship Rock, Sydney, NSW, Australia and later wiht HI-8 Camera 1992 in Lady Musgrave Lagoon, Queensland. Decorator crabs are an important food source for some fishes, including croakers and cabezon. A crabs shell doesnt grow, but the crab does. To solve this dilemma, a crab must molt as it grows, shedding its old exoskeleton and forming a new, larger one. The old shell loosens as a new one forms beneath it. When the old shell splits, the soft animal crawls out. Before its new shell hardens, the crab absorbs water and expands to a size larger than before the molt. While the new shell is hardening, the crab hides from predators. Decorator crabs recycle their living decorations during the molting process—they remove the anemones, sponges and other decorations from their old shell and use them to decorate their new shell.

This is our decorator crab Velcro releasing her eggs in our JBJ HQI 28 gallon reef. We'd had her for about three months when she did this. The video shows just one of about ten clusters she released through the evening and night. The green chromis, as you can see, gobbled up every one of the babies unfortunately.
The story is cute: the decorator crab grabbed a bunch of seaweed and made itself a wig. ^__^ Also, an 11 pound, 50 year-old spiny (?) lobster at the end of the vid. Crazay.

Decorator crabs at the new SEA LIFE™ Aquarium in Carlsbad arent waiting for St. Patricks Day to start wearing green. This time lapse photography only lasts about one minute but was taken overnight. Aquarists put algae, pieces of seaweed and green sponges in with decorator crabs and they quickly went to work embellishing their shells with the green décor.

and its grown considerably since i originally obtained it. The common name for this particular animal is the Emerald Crab however i find Calling them Emeralds somewhat inaccurate. although the most common color for this animal is Green it can also be Red or Pink like the ones found around Hawaii. These are in the spider crab family making them relatives to the king crabs and Decorator crabs. This spider crab however is almost entirely herbivorous feeding almost exclusively on Algae, there are ...
