With its white body blended with purple spots, the White Anemone Crab adds beauty to the tank. The White Anemone Crab is a docile organism, and is completely reef safe. It eats microorganisms in the water column and mucus from the anemone that it has a symbiotic relationship with. The White Anemone Crab is a peaceful crab, and thus makes a great addition to any marine reef tank. It features basket type feeding appendage to filter suspended particles from the water. Be sure to keep the White Anemone Crab in a large and well-established tank, with lots of large anemones, because if a clownfish drive the anemone crab from its host anemone, the crab may be harmed. Having said that, it is not that aggressive but attempts to defend their territory from the same, but eventually the clownfish prevails. The White Anemone Crab basically features large front claws, which they use to as a form of protection to fend off potential predators. It always prefers to live in pairs, under the protection of anemone. The White Anemone Crab chiefly feeds on planktonic foods and mucus from the host anemone. Additional supplements of meaty tablet foods placed next to the anemone, has also proved beneficial for its continued good health. The White Anemone Crab is generally aggressive toward other similar sized crabs, and should not be kept with larger crabs which may attack it. It may break off their claw just to distract the predator, so that the crab can escape. The White Anemone Crab undergoes ?molting?, and sheds their exoskeleton in order to grow. Therefore, addition of Iodine supplements will be beneficial for its molting activity.
