Calliactis tricolor, is a bizarre, red dish-pink sea anemone that lives on shells inhabited by hermit crabs. A fascinating example of symbiosis. The anemone's nematocysts protect the hermit crab from predators. The crab provides the anemone with food and mobility. Flat clawed hermits often fight over anemones and steal them from one another. | |= COMMON NAME: ||= Saltwater Hermit Crab with Anemones | |= SCIENTIFIC NAME: ||= Calliactis tricolor | |= SIZE AVAILABLE: ||= ~1-3 inch | |= MINIMUM TANK SIZE: ||= 1 crab per tank | |= FOOD/DIET: ||= Omnivore | |= CARE LEVEL: ||= Moderately easy | |= REEF SAFE: ||= Yes | |= AVAILABILITY: ||= Most always available - 99% |

Hermit crab with Anemone (Calliactis tricolor)
The crab I received is amazing - and very large! Crab and anemones both very healthy. If you are thinking about getting one of these crabs, please consider setting up a species tank for this crab. They are fascinating creatures and deserve a setting where they can shine! Plan for your crab to grow, as they can reach a pretty good size.
