Pom pom crab
I've got a pom pom crab in my 90 gallon tank. I've had him in there for a couple of months... I was worried initially that I'd never see him, they're usually recommended for small nano tanks, simply because they like to hide and hang out in the rocks (I've got 150 lbs of LR, thinking I'd be lucky to get one glimpse a month if that). He's actually been fairly "out there", he does stay in the rocks, but will make an appearance at the edge of the rockwork a few times a week.
Early on, he lost one of his two front arms which hold the anemones, so he only had one anemone. I was worried that even after he re-grew his arm after a molt or two, that he'd be without the other anemone... well he molted, and just yesterday we noticed that he has two anemones again! I don't know if he split the one he was carrying, or if he remembered where he left the other, and picked it back up again, but however he did it he's got both of his pom poms back now lol.
