Hi Danny

I would say there nipping and then your getting like diatoms growing on the exposed skeleton

They can be little buggers sometimes m8,Is this the only coral there going to ?

You can get this with a tube worm or some sort that burrows into the skeleton but looking at the pic close you can see its fresh so i would guess at the crabs

cheers jas,

they do hang about on the seritopora aswell but i dont think you would notice any nibble marks on it.

i reckon it is the hermits too but just wanted to check incase it was anything contagiious :)

thanks mate
