Few days ago came home and found this crab in my birdsnest. Can anyone tell me if it is reef safe and what kind of crab it is. Can it go back into tank or should I just sump it?

Thanks

Yeah, I already removed him for the picture. I will throw him into the sump. Thanks!

A friend of mine just found one of those as well. He identified it as Cymo Andreossyi.
Apparently they eat the flesh/ Polyps off of SPS. So better off in your sump.
