If you are still seeing some ammonia it sounds like you aren't quite finished with your cycle. If it were me, I would wait until the cycle completes and the tank stabilizes before you swap substrates.

yeah, I am considering making the switch, but I agree in terms of waiting for the tank to cycle prior to changing the substrate. Sand will look beautiful though

Do you have a spot for the crab to climb out? He'll drown I'm pretty sure

If it's freshwater it can because I'm almost positive that all freshwater crabs require land to climb on however you may want to check
I like your school of neons/cardinals, very colorful!

Actually, the kind of crab you have, the freshwater (actually needs brackish) fiddler crab can drown. They need access to the air.

Yeah.. The fiddler crab needs immediate help. They're not taken great care of in the stores, so naturally, if you don't help it, it will soon die.

Freshwater fiddler crabs, along with most other crabs, are tidal creatures and need access to air.

You can add a tall fake plant or decoration temporarily for the crab to reach the surface till you can return it or set it up properly.

The Pink Kissing Gouramis may get nasty and big. Keep an eye on them. I don't like them, the ones I've been around have been bullies.
