    PLEASE NOTE BELOW: THE ANEMONE's THEY HAVE IN THIS TANK IS NOT WHAT ANEMONE's SHOULD LOOK LIKE. THEY ARE BLEACHED (NEARLY ALL OF THEM!)

    PLEASE NOTE: THIS TYPE OF HERMIT CRAB SHOULD BEST BE PLACED IN A FISH ONLY, OR SPECIES TANK - NOT IN A MIXED REEF TANK!

    PLEASE NOTE: EVEN THOUGH "IT MIGHT LOOK NICE" - PLEASE DO NOT EVER PUT AS MANY FISH, AS IS IN THIS TANK BELOW, IS SUCH A SMALL TANK - THESE PEOPLE HAVE A HUGE FILTRATION SYSTEM IN THE BACK END - BUT, IT IS NOT HEALTHY FOR THE FISH!

    Their reef tank below, is a very nice size. It is huge, with a few coral "bommies/mounds".....

    These were taken, using my new cell-phone. So, please excuse the quality.
