Obviously too small and not detailed enough to give a good ID. But, judging by the markings on the claws, I’d guess stone crab.

I agree with Ray. Claws look like a Stone Crab, but, if the legs are “hairy” it may be a gorilla crab. If so, move it to the sump, as they like to dine on corals. Check to see if the claw tips are flat or pointed. Flat indicates an algae eater, pointed usually means trouble.

I'm also betting on Gorilla crab. When in doubt on a crab, remove it.
