Is you cycle finished, if not, the crabs probably won't make it, neither will fish. What are your water parameters? How long have you been cycling?

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

water parameters look good, it seems to have peaked and is now leveling off. The only thing that is a bit high is the nitrAtes. I have been cycling this water/rock for two and a half/three weeks now.

I am not sure if it makes any difference that the first two weeks were in a different tank which broke and I just transferred the water/rock/sand into another tank.. However it did switch to a new filter system.

It is only a 14 gallon tank as well I should add.
