Hermit crab with anemones Hi Folks – fantastic site, I’ve been loitering around here for a couple of months digesting all the info I can – now I have a couple of questions I hope you can help me with. I have a huge hermit crab (around 2′” long) with two anemones on his shell. I have two questions. what type of anemones are these likely to be? They seem extremely hardy – getting buried in sand, squashed between the shell and the aquarium glass, and scraped along the rock whenever the crab crawls into one of the caves. I’ve had this combo for 3 months now, and the anemones are Bauern Dating-Seite looking very healthy and growing at a pretty fast rate. Second question – my crab has changed shells 3 or 4 times since I’ve had him, and he always takes the anemones with him, I’ve never seen this happen but I’d love to know how this occurs. Does the crab move them over to the new shell, or does he just sit there and wait for them to move themselves? Any answers or more information on this curious combination would be greatly appreciated.

So it fascinating varieties was renown getting adorning their cover with life anemones (certain having Calliactis species)

Coral hermit I just bought a Staghorn hermit crab. not sure just what to call him. <> He mostly just sits about the tank watching the world go by. I would like to know if I am supposed to provide future homes for him. is he nocturnal? <> (He sits in the cave that belongs to the shrimp. it takes up about 1/4 of my 60 gal.) I have great water quality, and nothing that would bother him as all other hermits are smaller, and the fish are “peaceful” and small. Any other info on care and behavior would be great, as I noticed this crab is missing in your articles. <> thanks a lot <>
