Fiddler Crab Care



How to Take Care of Wild Fiddler Crabs

Steps

  1. Catch some fiddler crabs.Just go down to a beach and if you find holes in the ground,you can wait till the crabs come out. If you scared them into their holes,you can wait till they come out(if you're one of those patient people) or if you see their legs inside the hole, go about 1/2 an inch away, and scoop the sand(you have to be really fast).
  2. Set up the tank.Get at least a 5 gallon (18.9 L) tank and put down rocks( as an aquifer) then put down some sand or mud. If you get sand or mud from your backyard, make sure that it has gardening stuff in it.
  3. Put the sand or mud in a slope form (so that the crabs don't drown)and put plastic aquarium plants in for decoration.Don't use live plants.
  4. Take sitting water and put some aquarium/marine salt in it all around the tank.Follow instructions on how much to add.
  5. Give them some fish food or algae pellets and smash them into bite-sized pieces for them to eat.they also enjoy hermit crab food and dried shrimp.
  6. Be prepared for a little bit of fighting.Some fighting will go on, but don't be afraid, it's natural for them to fight for females, territory, holes, and food.

    A large tank (5 gallons). Sand and mud, along with smooth river stones. Ensure that the crabs can climb out of the water by setting the sand up in a slope. You'll also need salt water, fish food and algae pellets. Finally, you'll want a lamp for heat.
    Thanks!

    It depends on the fish. Ask a pet store employee about what type of food is good for your fish. For fiddler crabs, you can feed them algae tabs, commercial crab food or dried bloodworms, krill or shrimp.
    Thanks!

    They will drown if they are unable to come out of the water, if that's what you mean.
