I don't think there are any freshwater crabs--all the ones I know about are brackish or saltwater. The brackish require the ability to get to land as well, otherwise they drown.

So do I--I plan to set up a fiddler crab (brackish) tank at some point. Trying to figure out how to make it deep enough for a good fish tank yet make sure the crab won't drown himself being unable to get up to the land without getting a huge one *lol*

I will--just wait a couple years. I need to find a place to live that I'll be there for a while and that can hold the many tanks I want to put together *rofl*
