    Yes, that is a porcelain crab. That species will generally live in the rock-work.
    You do not need a nem for it, although I'm sure it would like one.

    Target feed it crushed pellets (powder like) through a pipette or baster so it can filter feed every couple days.

    I had one that lived on top of the wet side of my Vortech MP10 and filter fed the incoming particles. lol
