The Saltwater Porcelain Anemone Crab is a docile and reef safe addition to any invertebrate or reef aquarium. They like to get into pairs under the shelter of an anemone and will try to fend off other creatures invading their space.
Additionally, what do anemone crabs eat? Porcelain Anemone Crabs are generally aggressive toward other similarly sized crabs, and should not be kept with larger, aggressive crabs, which may attack it. Porcelain Anemone Crabs eat planktonic food and mucus from the host anemone. It may be supplemented with meaty tablet foods placed next to the anemone.
