    I got a fiddler crab about a month ago, but it wont 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
    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 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!

    Crabs are scavengers by nature. They'll pretty much eat anything that falls on the bottom. Give them sinking shrimp pellets as you would for corys and other bottom feeders.

    The lil crab is in a 2 1/2 gallon, it has access to land, i had small feeder guppies in with it before, but it didnt seem to do anything...
