Emerald Crab

I recently added an emerald crab (Mithrax sculptus)and already I'm starting to have concerns for his well-being. I've never had much luck with emerald crabs. Not so much with them dying, but with them eating and nipping coral.

 

The problem: While looking at my emerald crab I noticed he was very still and out in the light. This was unusual for me because I've always thought they were nocturnal, or at least in my experience they've been significantly more active during the evening. Also, he seems to be having smoke rising out of what looks to be his mouth, or possibly his mid-section just below his mouth.

 

Could this be semen? Or should I be worried about it's possible toxicity to the other invertebrates?

 

Immediate responses would be nice.

 

Thank you in advance.

Ahh, alright. Thanks.

 

I was worried it might've been toxic or a negative sign.
