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.
