A customer brought in a fiddler crab to my LFS because they bought it from Petco and didn't realize what it was and what its needs were. So I picked it up for 3 bucks.
I did some research about them and found there to be very little information or photos of fiddler crabitats. I had a spare 10g tank sitting around so me and the woman threw together something we thought would work (its gonna be her pet
Started out with a glass divider in the 10g to make a wet and dry side.
This is where I stopped taking pictures lol. We got too engrossed in setting it up that I forgot to take pictures of the progress. We siliconed lava rock to the wet side of the divider in a slope so the crab would have a way to get up to the dry side. I've heard they don't like to climb. In the dry side I also put a little glass 'planter' that I had made a while ago for a wabi-kusa setup but never went through with it. I want to add some terrestrial plants in that section, just gotta find something suitable. I also added a driftwood log in the wet section to give him another alternative to the wet/dry transition.
Excuse the plastic plant. Its just a temporary place holder
Filtration will be via a tetra 2-10 in tank filter. I located the filter so it creates a little bit of a water fall.
Salinity is set to about 1.008
Any input would be appreciated. This is my first dive into a brackish setup. I'm looking for plant ideas that would go well in here.
