Pom Pom crab with Clownfish

Will they coexist? Will the false percula clown fish attack the crab?

Doubtful. I had one with two oscellaris and he did fine. They just hide all day everyday

So you think it shouldn't be a problem?

Clowns don't usually mess with inverts so you should be fine. Can't say 100% sure (some fish are jerks) but I'm 99% sure you won't have a problem

A healthy fish isn't going to be caught and killed by a crab, they're way to slow. Pom pins are very peaceful but they're still crabs and a crab is going to eat a dead fish.

My antenna goby was living a happy life with pistol shrimp for 6 months. No signs of odd behavior.

Plain and simple, as I've stated in other threads that you have brought back from the dead regarding pom pom crabs, crabs are opportunistic creatures. They will have no problem munching on a corpse of your favorite fish that died from whatever issue, be it age, stress, disease, bullying...so on. This is why some get a bad wrap. They are 'caught in the act' of doing their job and get labelled as a killer. Throw the internet into the picture and you'll be able to put together a small group of people that don't understand the creatures they are keeping to come up with something that simply doesn't make sense. Pom pom crabs can NOT kill a healthy fish. Not fast or strong enough to do so.
