Photo Of The Week - Porcelain Crab (Petrolisthes sp.)
On this Friday the 13th, an ominous day for some, we bring to you a Porcelain Crab to bring you good fortune. Although it is not one of the most alluring crabs we bring, the Porcelain Crab is one of our top 10 best selling crabs and here is why. They fall under the clean-up crew category as they are known to filter the water and tend to scavenge around rocks searching for food. With this said, they prefer to live in rocky environments. So, make sure to include some rock pieces in your aquarium to keep them happy. A group of them can be housed in one tank, just make sure to provide plenty of hiding spaces for them. They are reef and community tank safe as long as you ensure that they are not near anemones or large fish that will consider them food. For added nutrition feed them frozen meaty foods.
