anemone crab

  1. General Reef Discussion
    I added a porcelain anemone crab to one of my tanks yesterday with the hopes of it living in one of my mini-maxi carpets. Instead, it's decided it wants to live in the LTA that hosts my maroon clown. The LTA is only maybe 3" across and the clown is about an inch, so both tiny. Well, the crab is...

    So a few days ago I got an anemone crab (the kind that lives on the anemone). He is not a porcelain anemone crab, just labeled as anemone crab-carribean. He is brownish/greenish/beigeish and has hairy legs. He is living under me rock anemone but from time to time ventures off into the rocks...

    Hi guys! Haven't been on here in a while but I have a perplexing question... recently I took some mushroom and xenia frags into my LFS for some credit and ended up getting a baby 6-line wrasse and a "flower crab" as I was told it was called. The guys at the LFS told me that it arrived in a...

    Good morning everyone! So in my LFS's new anemone tank - they have this nem. Can anyone give an ID? LFS owner really doesn't even know - but thinks it's some type of rock anemone... another thought is a beaded anemeone (Heteractis aurora). What do you think?

    Sorry I haven't been able to get a good shot of the new RBTA since the split. Late is better then never... You can see both in this shot the "mother" is the lower left, and the new "clone" finally came out to a good spot in the top. The anemone was forced to split as tension between the crab...

    Ok I have way too much flow in my tank for a sebae anemone to attach to the bottom. (bare bottom) If I turn my flow down it attaches within minutes, I leave it there for a few hours and ease my my flow back up and within an hour my anemone is flyin around the tank. My GSM will host with any...

  17. SPS Coral Forum
    Last night I fragged a couple of my corals. After they were mounted and placed into the egg crate rack I made, I figured I'd take a few snapshots so I can track their progress. My camera is fairly high resolution for not being a DSLR so when I viewed the pictures on my computer in "actual size"...

    Well as some of you may know I had quite the move back to Jax. The day I moved back my 20L broke and I ended up keeping 35+ coral pieces in a rubbermaid while looking for a replacement. I ended up going with a 45g Tech in cherry. It has about 60lbs of Fiji LR, and 35-40lbs of sand. Lighting is a...
