The Hermit Crab with Anemone forms a symbiotic relationship with the anemone with which it shares its home. The anemones that are attached to the shell provide camouflage as well as protection. 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. As it grows, the Hermit Crab with Anemone needs larger shells, therefore we advise you to add multiple sized shells in the aquarium tank.
