hello and welcome:19:
a 10g would be good for 1 but if youre adding more than a bigger tank will be better............im guessing you know that these crabs also like land to chill out on eg some stones, slate and bogwood,and also a very tight lid/hood is recommended as these like to escape,
fiddler crabs i dont know much about........but someone will:19:
