Anemone Crab

hey guys i was looking around and i saw an anemone crab


how does that work? does the crab actually feed the anemone? and if the anemone dies will the crab go with it? or does it pick up new anemones after it dies

cause i want to get some of those guys

i had bought an anenome carb with an anenome....then my Anenome died and now the crab has been trying to host my hairy mushrooms...but they dont like them. Its my understanding that the crab just uses it for protrction...this crab is a filter feeder mostly, but will grab some food that floats on the anenome. They do not need a host to live.

I have 3 anenome crabs that came as hitchikers in my liverock. I have a white, blue and green one. They all hang out at the same on LR on the tank. It is fun watching their filter feeding techniques
From what I read...they do not need an anenome and will just fine without one.
