I got a fiddler crab about a month ago, but it won't eat anything I give it, but flakes, and shrimp bites? What else will it eat, and how many other crabs could go with her? Ive never owned one before, it was kinda a suprise gift. Strange gift, but eh' it works...So if anyone has any advice, I need all I can get...lol
Thank you

It is a beautiful crab. I wish I could help you, but I know less than nothing about them. I know someone around here will come along and help as I know we have members who have mentioned having them.

How nice to meet you. Welcome to Fishlore.com. I hope you will find this to be one of your favorite sites and that you enjoy being here as much as I have and continue to do.

I have 2 in a 5 gallon and they are doing fine. Yes, they do need access to air. Have fun with your little critters!
