  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    My local fish store has fiddler crabs for sale. Does anyone have experience with crabs in a planted tank, or crabs in general? The store owner didn't have much to say, and they aren't mentioned in the books I have from the library on planted tanks. Thanks! Anna 30 gallon goldfish tank (three...
