I purchased this little guy and two days later he was living with my purple tip condy anemone I purchased from here. They are a great pair!

Neopetrolisthes oshimai
I bought two of these. They are colorful and tolerant of poor water quality. One of them lost its anemones. I had read that once in a tank, one might never see them again, but I have had five sightings in two weeks. I love these little charmers.

Anemone Crab
Bought this little guy and set him loose in my tank where I have 3 RBTA's. Didn't see him for about a week, but sure enough he finally took up residence in the biggest RBTA and isn't afraid of the two clowns that also host this anenome. Fun to watch. Just might get another once since they like to hang out in pairs. Cute and healthy critter. Thanks Reefs2Go.

Love this crab
It arrived healthy though a little smaller then expected. This guy took to my anemone like a fish to water. My wife loves it.
Keri of VA
Great choice for a reef tank!
I added one of these to my order thinking that I'd probably never see it. However, it stays around the corals, so I can almost always find it. It has feather-like legs that it waves over its head, then cleans as it filter-feeds. It also picks around the corals without disturbing them. Now I wish I had gotten more than one!
