    1. Are rock flower anemones good choices for the crab?
    2. Will my shrimps and snails get injured from the nem?
    3. What are good foods for the crab and nem?
    4. Is the rock flower anemone good for tanks less than a year old?

    It's possible they'll take to it but, like clowns there's no guarantee
    2. Will my shrimps and snails get injured from the nem?
    All my inverts have been fine with my rock flowers nems.
    3. What are good foods for the crab and nem?
    Mysis and krill will be good for the nem and crab but, the crab is also a filter feeder so it'll catch plankton from the water column
    4. Is the rock flower anemone good for tanks less than a year old?
    It's not really recommended to get any anemone before a year but, rock flowers are extremely hardy and can get through a lot.
