I'm not sure if that's enough space for them; I'll let someone else comment.

I do, however, want to mention that you need to make sure there's a place in the tank for them to get out of the water. Therefore, you won't want to fill it up all the way to the top with water, maybe about 1/2 or 1/3 of the way instead. You could use rocks that stick out enough for them to climb up out of the water, or you could slope your substrate in such a way to allow them to come up onto dry land.

The only advice I have to give to you about Fiddler Crabs is, they are escape artist and they make it there lifes mission to get out of your tank. Good Luck!
