Pom Pom Crab

These small crabs carry around two small anemones for self-defense. Pom pom crabs are fairly common in the aquarium trade and apparently live well in captivity, with or without their anemones. The crab shown here is Lybia tessellata, the anemones are usually of the genus Bunodeopsis or Triactis.
