Hi , I thought it might be a small decorator crab at first ,but the more I look at it the more my eyes go blurry lol.
Could be a small coral crab ,
See if you can get a better picture if possible that I can expand ,I know it's not easy taking pictures of marine life at the best of the times .
Looks quite a cool little fella though ,
Hope this helps a bit ,

Looks like a decorator crab to me too. It's not a porcelain crab
