needing exspert help and info for a Purple Vampire crab

Hi im needing exspert help and info about Purple Vampire crabs. I rescued one that was going to be thrown outside(Its Winter here). They kept it in a small bucket totally submursed in water with nothing to climb on. As i found out thats not the kind of home they need. I really dont have no idea what it needs or how to take care of it. Can someone PLEASE HELP me. I first put it in a beta tank because i didnt have anything else but today i found a 5 gal tank. So i set it up i had to put a board over it for now. Thank you to whom ever can help me. if you need pics to show you what its home looks like now i can post some.

But it doesnt give me info on what items i need for there living conditions etc. I am trying to find someone who has Vampire crabs so i can get info on what items i need for there home and how to put it all together. I live in Ontario, Canada so i need to be able to get the stuff from here NOT the States. Thank you again.
