The Hermit Crab with Anemone shakes the front anemones in the hope of stinging the invader into retreat. The Hermit Crab with Anemone undergoes molting and sheds its exoskeleton in order to grow. It prefers an aquarium with large amounts of stable rock work and dim light. The Hermit Crab with Anemone is aggressive and is not suitable for reef or a peaceful community tank. It feeds mainly on fish, snails and worms, apart from detritus and some algae.
