I just bought some red land crabs, which were labeled as fire crabs. I just wanted to know if any of you know anything about them because I could not find any info for fire crabs. Would they need the same care as a halloween crab?

Here are some pics.

Look up info for "red claw crabs". They like brackish water and can be set up like fiddler crabs (you may want to look up info on fiddler crabs too).

Hope this helps!

How would I go about setting it up to be brackish?

I have them in fresh water now. I had origanally set this up for halloween crabs, but they were out of stock so I bought these. Here is a pic of the set up.

I am not sure that these are red claw crabs. I think they are bigger than any of the pics I saw when I did a search and I did not see any with a red body like mine have.

I do not know the scientific name and I have not been able to figure it out. If anybody can figure it out it would help a lot.
