I have tried keeping fiddlers, red claw, and vampire crabs. Make sure there is no possible way for them to escape because they will. Make sure they have an area that is out of the water because none of these crabs are true aquatics and need some terrestrial time.

some ledgeing would be nice like some lava rock as it is porous enough to climb on and makes great caves and ledging.do any of these crabs need some salt? or are they all really fresh water.and do they tear up plants as i might want some too.i do like those inverts.
