    0 Not allowed!
    I boought a few of these crabs under the tag of "Fiddler Crab" but they dont look anything like it. They are also much larger then the red claw crabs i had before and the claws are much darker. What are they, anyone?

    The claws on females are usually the same size. Male fiddler crabs often lose claws and regrow them.

    It doesn't look like any kind of fiddler crab I've seen, female or otherwise. It looks like a Red Clawed Crab to me, but you said it's larger? How much larger are we talking because they can get fairly big and a lot of stores sell them as juveniles.

    I agree. It's a red claw. They have stouter legs than fiddlers.
    25g fresh community (pleco, angel, GBR pair, loaches)
    20L fresh community (pleco, tetras & yo-yo loach)
    10g brackish w/fiddler crabs, female guppies & bb gobies
    5g male guppies & ADF

    It is not a fiddler, for sure. I'd say it's RCC and just like somebody else already said, they can get quite big when they're fully grown (up to 5cm without legs).
