Depending on the crabs sure. They shouldn't bother each other. May need to supplement feeding though.

Your ok to add them and you dont have to supplement feed them. They will eat anything from frozen cubes to flakes

They might pair up, they usually do. Ive only had it happen once that the bigger guy killed the smaller one.

Mine did that for a few days but then they paired up and you'd rarely see them on opposite sides of the tank. Then I think my marine beta are them. He's on his way out of the tank as soon as he swims into my trap.
