Pom pom crab

So I'm starting up my tank it's a 75 with 100 pounds of rock and it's been up for almost two months now and I just have 2 occ clowns ( had them for two weeks) and a cuc. Just been taking it slow. But I'm planning on adding some shrimp this weekend but I saw one of these pom pom crabs and they are awesome!!!!!

I've looked them up but I was wondering if anyone has ever kept them before and if I should know anything

I had one in my 4g pico tank and it was rare to see him in there. They are really really tiny. My crab also lost it's pom poms and died. Not sure if he just couldnt eat anymore since his anemones were gone or if it was just his time.

I would suspect that you wouldnt see it at all pretty much in a 75g tank.

If you like crabs, they have emerald crabs which are bigger and quite amusing to watch. Mine do a little dance at the front of the glass. lol

Or maybe a porcelain crab, also a bit larger and he waves his little arms to capture suspended food, also fun to watch.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
