You can't, he will eventually spread onto the rock. Also, I hope you know fiddlers are brackish and need a land portion. It will probably die in a tank like that

Not this one apparently I did my research and they are like red burrowing crabs which are part of the fiddler family but live completely underwater it's weird I know because I really wanted a ghost crab and they are like the ones you described so I looked for one that was similar and this is what came up

They take a while. Just glue the frag plug on the rock you want so you can't move it around a lot.

Rics don't need to be fed, all you'll do is add excess nutrients to your system

As far as feeding they get all they need from the lighting and water column.
