Question Golden claw fiddler crabs.

I have two males and two females (the males get along well). I was told my crabs won’t molt in captivity and that was a lie. My one female crab crabby (I call her that cause her personality is crabby but she’s having eggs and I have them in a 20 gallon but right now I have her in a 10 gallon till she has her eggs. I been trying to find someone who will take in the babies cause I don’t have the time or money to take care of the babies. What can I do with the babies. I don’t want to kill them and I know they won’t survive in the wild.

Hi, yes, never release aquarium animals into the wild as they can transfer disease and illnesses which the wild ones might not have.

It is very possible the babies will not survive. They need marine water for their larval stages.

I haven't read through all of this post but it looked pretty thorough.
