Welcome to Fishlore!
Perisesarma Bidens (Red Claw Crabs) are mangrove crabs; they need brackish water to survive whereas Metasesarma Aubryi (Red Apple Crabs) are like Amano shrimp: They start out as larvae that need seawater to survive than get the heck out of there quickly as their adult bodies need only freshwater.

Also Red Claws have an almost entirely brown patterned carapace while Red Apples are matte black-brown with red or orange accents. In person, Red Apples have yellow eyes.
