My LFS doesn't always have red crabs in stock and i hardly ever see fiddler crabs. I am try to replace my fiddler crab that managed to escape and dissapear from my tank. I've already fixed the tank so that the crabs can no longer climb up the airlines or filter tube.

I wanted to see if anyone knew of a good online place to get them for a decent price.

They don't have any of the blue lobsters, but they look awesome.

Do you have a petsmart? Ours is always stocked up with red crabs

well i love my red crabs, but it seems no matter what i do, they never live longer then a month or two. I have above water spots for them to hang out on, i hand feed them food with my little feeding stick to make sure that they are eating, but they always keel over.

I am more curious about the fiddler crabs then anything, i have a large blue lobster/crayfish that is about 4-5 inches. He is awesome.

I had good luck with a fiddler crab, he was 3 years old before he escaped somehow and dissapeared one evening... (think i left the lid open accidentally.)
