Never mind. I answered my own question and looked it up...for the record, NO, they don't have gills and need access to the surface...so they aren't good for aquariums. Also, they are capable of catching and eating small fish.

Hahaha I loooooove those guys! They have them at my local Petsmart. They've got a bunch of styrofoam pieces that float in the tank for them to come out of the water. I looooove messin with them by waving my hand over the top slowly. All I can picture is the finding nemo crabs "Hey! Hey! Hey!" lmao!! :hmm3grin2orange:
