Hey all
I have a few porcelain anemone crabs in other tanks and wanted one for the new (8 month) nem tank.
He went straight to hiding and it’s been almost 2 fulls days. No skeleton found or anything but how long could it take for them to come back out?
My others went straight to hosting right away

We've had a couple that hid for a few weeks.

They’ll do this. My porcelain crabs never stay in one spot. Usually they find a new home every 1-2 months. But I don’t have any nems them but they do prefer to stay around corals with wavy tentacles.

Oh, I found him. Turned off the return for feeding and he was right on top doing his filter feeding thing
 

Where do you go in case of a real reef tank emergency?
