The Boxer Crab is white to tan in colouration and has darker markings covering the body which serve as camouflage for the crab. This crab can carry an anemone in each claw which it uses for defense. Besides defense, the crab will also use the anemones to mop up food off of the rocks and substrate.

The Boxer Crab is an interesting addition to an aquarium with its anemones in each claw. It raises these anemones at would be predators and aids in cleaning the aquarium of any left over food and detritus. Caution should be used when adding this crab to a reef aquarium as the anemones could sting sessile invertebrates and corals. The damage that could potentially be caused by these tiny anemones that come on each claw would be minimal due to their very tiny size.

The diet of the Boxer Crab should include finely choppedmeaty foods such as mysis shrimp, chopped fish and clams.
