Yeah, horseshoe crabs are one of the animals that are better left in the wild, sorry. It really doesn't matter how much you care for him, he will just starve easily.

Don't know if anyone said this already but- Pom Pom Crabs, or you could do a mantis tank... Those are always cool. They do need reinforced glass though.

the foot print of a 29g tank first of all is way to small for a horseshoe crab look at it like this putting a elephant in a phone booth there is no room to move around it would also die from starvation
they also require a very deep sand bed 6+ inch deep

Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors
