Candy (Soft Coral) Crab
Hoplophrys oatesii


These wonderful little crabs are really called Soft Coral Crabs, but the guides in Lembeh have always called them ‘Candy Crabs’ and it’s easy to see why.

They live on soft coral and are pretty rare and hard to see. This one was one of the biggest I’ve seen, about the size of a large pea!!
