Ok i know I have another topic but it just occured to me that a fiddler crab would be ok too. So the main thing i want to know is if someone could list off all the things a starter is going to need to properly take care of these crabs from the start. my idea is to make this a community tank as well and im sure its possiple to do this with fiddlers in a 10 gallon aquarium as long as i move the gravel up on one side. So all i need is the supplies.
Thanks in advance

Fiddler crabs are terrestrial, not aquatic....  they need a lot of land, with sand deep enough they can burrow and dig holes in it.   They also need a place to swim.  Typically a dish of water in a tank with 4-5 inches of sand is provided.  You couldn't have fish with them.
