    Do Porcelain crabs eat bristle worms?:a17:
  2. Anemones
    I read that porcelain crabs do well as pairs. I recently added a second crab and put him near the anemone that is home to my original crab. They were very hostile towards each other and finally the original crab left the anemone and went to another nearby anemone. The original porcelain crab is...

    Here's a nice shot of 2 porcelain crabs under a rock ledge. The larger one top/right in nice focus and the small one in bottom/left a little blurry as he is waving his feeders wildly. These were hitchhikers on my live rock when I purchased "the package" for my 28 gal JBJ from www.tbsaltwater.com

    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...

    Ive had a few fish/shrimp in my fishkeeping life which have been apparently healthy, eating, etc, and have mysteriously disappeared from the tank with no evidence or found body whatsoever. I am talking, out swimming around eating one night, and no body the next day (I don't keep very heavy...

    I'am sorry i know this question has probably been asked time and time again, but i have searched the fourms and cant seem to find what the awanser is. I'am down to four in my 24 gallon aquapod. Is this enough or do i need more? How much of a bioload are the crabs considered.

    The tank in the middle will have clowns and anemones. I need to know what would be the best. I want to get white striped maroons but I don't know if they go in the giant carpets. I want to get 2 of them and 2 sets of different species of clowns at same time. Maroons are my favorite but I am not...

    I know there's not much to look at in this photo but maybe someone has run into this before and might be able to ID it. It's been living in a Meralina coral that has been in my tank for approx. 3 months now. I discovered it about a week after I placed the coral into the display. It hides out in...
