    Can anyone tell from these photos if my pom pom crab is carrying aiptasia? He was sans pom poms when I bought him - picked this up a few days into my tank. I search my tank daily (a little obsessive about it, truth be told) and haven't seen anything like this growing anywhere.

    I'm just curious whether anyone knows what kind of anemone a pom pom crab carries, or whether it matters?

    So i currently have 3 pom-pom crabs in my 72l (19 us gallons) reef tank. I really love inverts and find them much more fascinating than fish. I also have 4 hermit crabs, 2 peppermint shrimp, 6 nassarius snails and 5 turbo snails (reccent gift from an ebayer due to slow delivery). I wanted to...

    So I noticed my pom pom had eggs. Was not sure if they were fertilized. Lost the other pom pom in an unfortunate rock removing process.. So I was curious if they had possibly been fertilized before the accident, if the other was actually even a male.. Well last night after my lights went off I...

    So yesterday I picked up a Pom Pom crab and just wanted to share it with you guys. He has both anemones on his hands and this morning when I feeding the tank he was sweeping his hands back and forth collecting food. It was awesome.

    Hi. I'm starting a all invert tank and I need some help. My tank size will be roughly in between 40 gal and 80 gal. I know that's pretty vague, but I just need some suggestions on livestock. I already am going to put in a Pom Pom crab, and snails and hermit crabs:help:

    I got a cleaner shrimp the other day, and tonight, I found my pom pom crab(hitchhiked on live rock) ontop of my shrimp, slowly dragging it into a cave. The cleaner shrimp was dead. Did the pom pom kill it somehow, or did the shrimp possibly die and the crab eat the dead body? It's a 10 gallon...

    So i recently got a live rock for my nano tank, and to my surprise, I found a small crab clung to a crevice on it. I later found out that this was a pom pom or boxer crab. My local pet store did not even have these in stock, or even ever sold them! Is it possible this little guy could hide in...

    We got 5 pompom crabs last week, all without anemones. They all disappeared until today, when one showed up waving a big aiptasia around... So, are we in for trouble, or does this happen a lot? I was hoping it would pick the white ball anemones instead. :(

  15. Crustaceans
    Well I picked up one of these little guys this afternoon. Ive done a great deal of research on them and Im hoping to keep him and his anemones happy. Anyone else have any experience or tips when caring for pom pom crabs? I hope in the future to pick up another pom pom so that if one looses...

    I like the relationship between the little nems. and the crab and was wondering if anyone on this site has had one? Do I need a good light source for the little nems or would they get the majority of their food from poking around with the crab. I'm moving out and want to keep a 5-10 gal...

    hey planning to set up my next tank. i went to the lfs for ideas and in a tiny tank they had pom pom crab. they looked so cool. so i did some research and because of there behaviours i narrowed it down to a safe but equally interesting match. the plan is a 3 gallon critter keeper that i bought...
