Adopted porcelain crabs are missing 1 or more claws or legs. They will regenerate over time. Porcelain crabs are commonly known as Anemone crabs. Porcelain crabs are found in varying degrees of brown and orange colors. Porcelain crabs prefer residing in the tentacles of anemone. Porcelain crabs are excellent reef compatible species. Porcelain crabs are filter feeders and can feed on detritus, algae, planktons, and mucus of the anemone. It can be conveniently supplemented with food tablets placed near anemone. Porcelain crabs can fit into a tank of not less than 5 gallons. Porcelain crabs usually peacefully coexist with other marine inhabitants. But it is recommended not to grow two porcelain crabs of the same sex as they might fight with each other. Porcelain crab is adaptable and can do without an anemone by living on live corals or rocks. Aquarists are advised to maintain the temperature of the tank at a temperature of 72 to 78 degree Fahrenheit. Porcelain crabs survive at a pH of 8.1 to 8.4. Porcelain crabs require strong lighting. Porcelain crab is commensal, hence it is vital to meet the needs of both the animals. Porcelain crabs can also be fed with food supplements such as magnesium, calcium, and iodine. Anemone crabs are immune to anemone stings. A specific gravity of 1.020 to 1.624 is necessary. Porcelain crabs are good algae eaters and can clean the water environment.
