The Porcelain Crab, Petrolisthes sp, features a beautiful marbled red and white round body with light blue accents and large pincers. They thrive in groups and will spend most of their time grazing live rock and sand for food in the form of plankton or algae. If they are unable to scavenge enough food they can take supplemental feedings of meaty foods (and will also clean up uneaten foods for other organisms). 
The Porcelain Crab is best kept in tanks with plenty of live rock and a nice sandy substrate. Good water flow can also help as they will filter the water column for small food particles. 

Very cool looking crab! A lot bigger than expected. Mainly hiding so far in caves but does come looking out.

The porcelain Crab is the best of the reef safe crabs i have had in my reef/coral tank. when I got him he was a bit small and I didn't think he would make it. But now after several months he has grow to the size of a silver dollar. When friends see him they think he is a baby Dungeness crab. This crab is great to watch picking through the sandy bottom for food. He will even take food from my hand at times
