i found a crayfish in my creek and i have kept it in a 10 gallon tank for a couple months

can i buy fiddler crabs and keep them in the same tank as the crayfish?

fiddler crabs need land too though, they might fight

Not to rain on your parade, but you should never introduce wild caught native species into your aquarium. In a lot of places it is against the law and you never know what kind of diseases they carry. Just for future considerations.:thumb:

righto and/or release wild caught species back into the wild.

you should get another tank if you want fiddlers

they have very different requirements
