Beware of hungry, jet-lagged decorator crabs!

Alright guys, so today I got two items from Caribbean Fish and More, an Orange Decorator Crab and a Polka-Dotted Hermit Crab! I acclimate them and put them in the tank and left to do other things. Not thirty minutes ago I came back to discover the decorator sitting atop my mushroom coral frag, ripping it apart and EATING IT! I was shocked, but not mad. These things happen, and I chalked it up to hunger and the fact that there was something green looking in the tank. But to give you an idea, here's some pictures.
