    Spotted Anemone Crabs (Neopetrolisthes ohshimai) are white with purple spots. They live within or under the tentacles of an anemone, usually the same types of anemones the serve as clownfish hosts (Bubbletip, Carpet, Long Tentacle, Sebae, etc.). They should generally not be kept with a clownfish as the clownfish will not usually share its anemone and will drive off or kill the anemone crab.

    Anemone Crabs are related to Porcelain Crabs. These crabs are named "Porcelain Crabs" because of their apparent fragility. When threatened, Porcelain Crabs may break off a claw or legs in an attempt to distract and predator so the crab can escape. This is not uncommon and may also happen during transport, acclimation, or during the crab's normal molt. This does not affect the crab's health and the legs will grow back over time.

    These crabs extend modified feeding "combs" into the water to trap planktonic foods from the water. They should be fed supplementally with food for filter-feeding invertebrates like phytoplankton, zooplankton and Marine Snow.
