    Thanks, EmpPleco, but it seems that you need to become a member . . . I already have too many accounts on different sites, and anyways, this will probably be the only time I'll ever even be using it! Any other suggestions?

    i didnt know you can have fiddler crabs in a 5 gallon tank will they stay in there or do you have to upgrade

    Thanks, Butterfly! Emma, actually, I'm not sure if it is a Betta Kit or not. It came from my friend, who used to have newts. Yes, they are Fiddler Crabs. ATM, they will not have to be upgraded. 5 gallons is enough for 2 Fiddler CRabs, because at full growth, they will only grow about two inches around. (So basically about 1 inch long)

    By the way, I already know that my 2 Silver Dollars are WAY too big for my tank. When they become huge, I will have to sell them to my friend, who has a 60 gallon. :'(

    really thats pretty sweet robodued what do they eat and is the maintence hard
     
  16. RoboDude Member Member

    Well, actually, it's pretty easy. All I actually had to pay for was the gravel, food, and the crabs themself. I gathered together some rocks and shells I found on the beach, and I got my tank off a friend, like I said. I feed them HBH Crab and Lobster Bites. When it comes to maintenance, all that is required is that you clean their tank every week - a week and a half. ;) This hobby of keeping Fiddler Crabs is easier than I expected it would!

    ?

    you have inspired me Robodude i now want fiddler crabs and am doing research right now but how do you clean your tank

    you do know theiy like a half and half set up with half land and half water so maybe if you bought more gravel and piled it up on one of the sidesĀ  with a slanted side so they can get up and out they would lilke it better not sure just doing a lot more research

    you do know they like to be near water but not completely submerged in it and like to be in brackish water
