I would do a pwc. It's not going to die off over a few days, you'll be fine. You will need to either feed the crabs or get a fish also. They will die if they don't have a food source.

I use new spectrum flakes and pellets as well as a wide assortment of frozen foods. I recently have started feeding spirulina flakes as well, fishies need their veggies too! lol

Do the water change then you can and go fish/invert shopping! You've earned it!

Hi ping pong more important than a water changei'm only kidding!
Very exciting getting close to getting some livestock! Just a quick question i have heard that turbo snails and hermits don't mix? I never had any problems though? Good luck and keep us posted on your progress
