    Hey Guys
    I would just like to know if I will be able to keep an Anenome Crab together with two Fire Shrimp, 1 Boxer Schrimp, 1 Brisstle Star. I also have two Clown Fish that are hosting in the RBTA at the moment. I would hope for the same RBTA to be a host for the crab. Will the Clowns refuse him to host in the RBTA?

    Thanks
    M

    also the size of the nennie is important, the clowns build a relationship with the nennie, its hit and miss

    Dude anemone crab will fight clowns away, Not a good idea adding one when your clowns are hosting unless its a huge one.
    Anemone crab would be Ok with the existing inverts.
    But ill ditch the crab and keep the clowns

    Agree with Ayoob and dorry and i just experienced this.
    After dripping my nennie and bucket tricking my clowns, they didnt wana leave it.
    they just swam away from it once and bang, in went the crab.
    Now they dont go near it as the crab has taken over:(
