I've read a bunch of the older threads and some other material but dont recal seeing any which indicates that blue legged crabs will eat corals, specifically shroom polyps.

I just added a few polyps yesterday and think i see signs of chewing. If i actually catch one in the act, i will personally string him up and leave him as an example for his kin.

anybody else aware of these crabs nibbling at their corals?

i seriously doubt ur crabs or anything else will eat your mushrooms. mushrooms r ill tasting (no 1st hand experience) n can release toxic chemical when attack.
