If we are talking FW Blue Crabs, I would say be careful about how much rock work/hiding places they would have and not keep more than a pair. But I do not know about these large guys, my inverts are generally just an inch or 2 full grown.

Crabs in general are opportunistic and will eat whatever they can find or catch.

Two options for information might be here

Possibly a question if anyone has ever kept them.

Freshwater & Brackish - Invertebrates - Aquarium Advice - Aquarium Forum Community

or as a native tank

A question on what fish might go with Blue Crabs.
Freshwater & Brackish - Coldwater, Native Fish & Ponds - Aquarium Advice - Aquarium Forum Community

They would likely be more apt to eat each other after molting as well.

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
