The porcelain crab is commonly found in tropical oceans. It has a flat round body, and come in a few different colors. Their two large claws are nothing to fear; these are timid reef-safe crabs.  Often found in the rock work or under the rocks, you can see these scavengers seeking food as well as protection. These can be kept in pairs.  This one has chosen to dwell in a sea anemone, a beautiful rainbow bubble tip. Initially the clownfish weren’t too pleased by the new arrival, but in time they decided it was no threat.
