    Is it possible to have tow porcelains in the same tank? I have one now and it's attached to one of my rock flower nems and I have another on the other isde of the tank that I'd like to get another for but I don't want the two fighting or anything so thought I'd check ahead of time. Will there be any problems?

    I had multiples in one tank. They didn't bother each other.

    Yes they should do fine. its when you start mixing them with other crabs that can cause a stir

    Yeah, I actually got another one about a week ago and after acclimating I placed him right on the rock flower nem I wanted him on. He is still there and doing his usual thing so the two probably don't even know about each other so it's worked out fine.
