Hey guys,
I don't know if it is the right forum...
Well, i've got new crab today, I think it's
Coenobita Compressus Ecuadorian

*I'll post pictures soon*

My question is- Can I put with him live plants? Right now i've got young sweet pepper plant.
The second question, on the left side of the tank can I put soil from the garden (within it i've got natural compost and cow manure)?

Disclaimer: I know nothing about crabs so I have no idea about his eating habits or if your plant will be in danger. I would say however that your garden soil might not be a good idea. Who knows what bacteria, parasites, or pesticides might be in that. I would recommend using something like Miracle Gro organic potting soil if you can get it. Great product and it is used in many dirted aquariums with much success.
