Each Black Nerite shell is home to the one species of hermit crab, and all such hermit crab homes seen by torch light on this nocturnal reef ramble at low tide (tide just starting to rise) bore at least one and usually two equally small sea anemones. I'll post those separately later. Home Beach Groper Bay.
