These Porcelain Crabs (Neopetrolisthes maculatus) usually share the anemone with some nice transparent shrimps and the vicious biting false Nemos mentioned before. They’re always there, and they’re easy to shoot. Getting them on a good angle is harder, since the anemone is usually concave and it’s no fun shooting from top.
I found this one in a fold, which allowed me to get him facing me, with the “hands” against a dark background. I was using the Inons, who helped on this regard. Speed here didn’t really matter. As they move their feeding hands in a cadency, I could predict when it would raise and open and shoot, even on TTL mode.
