View Full Version : Bought some crabs

I bought two crabs yesterday. Not 100% sure what kind they are, but I "think" they are Fiddler crabs?? They have one bigger claw and one small claw, kind of brownish in color. They didn't call them Fiddlers at the lfs. Anyway, the guy told me they can stay completely in the water, but not sure of any crab that can? I lowered the water level and laid my driftwood so they can crawl up on the top of it and get completely out of the water. Is this okay for them? Thanks! :ssmile:

Posting a pic of them would help people determine if they're fully aquatic or not.

They sound like fiddler crabs.They are not fully aquatic and like brackish water.
Here is a link with some info.
