Gourami, Corys, and a crab

Just got these guys in today! One beautiful gold gourami, 3 bronze corys and 3 panda corys, and one crab (dunno what kind; any ideas?). I put them in my 36 gallon corner tank which was pretty much emptied during an unfortunate moving accident. The paradise gourami is one of two fish that survived the move

Beautiful red claw crab you have there. They are semi terrestrial brackish water crabs. I would either take him back, or set up a small brackish tank for him. If kept completely underwater and in freshwater, it won't live long, and will be miserable while desperately in search of access to air.

Ok, thanks for the advice! I'll probably take him back then; HN1, it would be appreciated if you either gave good advice without being so snobbish, or didn't post. Notice how the others gave actual advice?

That being said, I was talking to the shop owner, and tried to validate his information on my smartphone, only to find I had no service. I also understand the dangers of impulse buying, but if that's my only vice, I think I'll take it

Maybe "snobbish" posts to the multitude of impulse buyers I've seen is my only vice. Good on you for taking the good advice offered. A bit of research in advance can save a lot of effort.
