Little help with salt

I'm thinking about getting two Fiddler crabs.

In one of my 10 gallon tanks, I have about 6 Neon Tetras, 4 Orange Von Rios, and 1 Amano shrimp. Have some Frogbit floating around and growing, some Java fern, the rest a is all fake.

So, they say Fiddler crabs may do better in slightly brackish water. If I wanted to provide slightly brackish water would the above survive? I am only thinking of using 1TBS per 5 gallons or just 1 TBS for the entire 10 gallons.

Basically would the low amount of salt work for everything in the tank and the Fiddler crabs? Or should I just forget about the salt all together?

You know fiddlers need a land section right? They donít really work with the stock listed above. But to answer your question neons really donít tolerate salt as well. Iíd setup a brackish specific tank for just fiddlers if you want fiddlers.
20 Gallon SPS reef
29 Gallon FW "fat catfish" tank
20 Gallon Long Dart Frogs "Zig" and "Zag"
