Re: Fiddler crabs in a salt tank?
elZacho, Fiddlers are primarily shore animals, they burrow in the sand, scavenge for food etc., having made the mistake of keeping some when I was new to the hobby about 100 years ago I would often find them walking around my house as they sought to get out of the water and go find food. I would put them back in the tank and they would crawl out again. Needless to say they were not long lived as it was not natural for them to live their lives underwater. They can even and probably should live in a brackish water tank with water temperature between 75-82 degrees. Basically, to keep them you should have a tank that is dedicated to them and specifically set up for their needs which can be very cool. If you Google Fiddler Crab care you should get some good information and you can set up a small tank just for them.
