That's awesome news! I believe fiddlers release their eggs into the sea, so they may require full strength seawater instead of brackish to hatch and develop.

They dig in the mud just to hang out. The female will spend days out of the water. She was carrying a ton of eggs. No clue if they hatched or anything. They hatch out of eggs into a planktonic stage and I'm not sure if they could survive in an aquarium setting. There's no way to protect a planktonic stage baby from filters.

For hermits, a salt water dish is placed in the tank, when the time comes, the female would release the eggs which then literally immediately changes into zoeas . Then, is transmitted into a oxygenated salt water, fed with bba. Zoeas will molt for 5-6 times bfe finally going to land in search of shells
