I bought these thai micro crabs at my local fish store. I got 6 for $20.
The only downside there small and they like to hide. Harmless to other fish.

The crabs at Walmart are not fully aquatic. "Fresh Water Crabs" is way too vague which in reality just means they don't know the species. They just sell what is available at the time which would either be Fiddler Crabs or Red Claws.
I don't know of any crabs that don't need access to air. I own two Fiddlers that have adjusted to their enclouser well and only climb up the heater or filter to get some air and jump off back to the bottom to forage.

yeah the poster that mentioned thai micro crabs was correct.
Thai micro crabs, fairly new to the trade, fully aquatic and no one has figured out how to breed them yet so they are harder to find. i've seen them mostly on line, they only reach about 1/2 an inch though so one needs to make sure they have suitable tank mates or they will be expensive fish food.
