hey everyone i have some questions about fresh water crabs
1.how big of a tank would you need for 1-2 of them?
5-10g is fine. But they are excellent climbers. They will climb any airhose or cord in the tank.
2.do the water have to be cycled?
Yes. Keep them in a warm room too, so a heater is required also.
3.what type of filter if any would you use?
Bubble filter is fine.
4.what can of food do ya feed them?
They will eat anything they can reach, they are scavengers. Fish food, flakes or small pellets, are fine.
Most crabs also need something to climb out of the water, like a rock or log. Don't forget that too. Can you be more specific about the type of crab? There are many types of fresh water crabs on the market, like fiddler crabs, soap dish crabs, thai crabs, etc.
