i have never heard of a red emerald.. they are green, hence the name emerald.. but i'm no expert either.. but sounds like a different species to me.

knowing how big the star was might help though.

and i'd definitely do some water tests. if he died naturally, die to stress or water conditions, it's highly likely the crabs would have made use of his carcas, but i dont know about them attacking it while still alive. though i do have video of my emerald attacking, killing, and eating, a porcelain crab.
