Hoping to attain the experience of others

Hey all, I recently bought myself a 10 gallon tank with 3 fiddler crabs.

They are such neat creatures, and I happened to stumble accross this site whilst trying to find information about molting and the like, I certainly can feel the community here.

So, I'm here to seek and share, and learn.

Is there anything specific I should know about these guys? I've added some aquarium salt, provided them with land, anything more specific I should know?

I'm happy to be here.

I've also re-arranged the aquarium a bit since the pictures were taken. I'll upload new ones soon enough.

Hello and welcome ^_^

Just make sure you're adding enough marine salt for them--recommended is enough for a specific gravity of 1.010 (3 T/gal). Fiddler crabs are awesome--planning on setting up a brackish water habitat that includes them once I have the room for the size tank I want *lol*

^_^
