Anemone and Marine Hermit Crabs

Post by maxpayen » Wed Sep 16, 2020 1:44 am

Howdy.. I'd like to add a bubble-tip anemone to my 60 gallon non-coral tank as company for my Maroon clown. I'm afraid that I may be adding a high priced meal for the 3 large hermit crabs already living there. Am I right in being concerned?

Marine Hermit Crabs and Anemones share a unique relationship in the wild so I wouldn't worry.

This relationship is exclusive to only a single species of hermit crab.
