Was considering a bird a few weeks ago but the hubby is not so much into that for the moment since we just adopted 2 kittens a month and a half ago (we already have a dog, 1 senior cat and 2 aquariums). I'd still like to get some kind of new pet that I have never kept before & I realized I have a good spot for a small aquarium, say 10 gallons. And since fish options for such a small tank are somewhat limited (already have a betta) I was wondering about some type of crab and fiddler crabs appealed to me since their habitats include sand and brackish water. Plus I think they are cute as all get out and interesting. I've done some research so far and there seems to be conflicting information about how well they do in captivity and how difficult they are to keep. Some sites say easy to care for and live 2-3 years, others say difficult to care for and rarely live more than a few months as they don't tolerate captivity well. I don't want to bring some poor crabs into my home only to have them not do well and die despite having great care. I was interested in any opinions or information, experiences that anyone has to share. I plan on doing tons more research before I do anything but would love to hear from anyone with some experience with these guys. Also if you know of any reliable sites where I can get good information that would be great too. Thanks in advance!
