(i'll admit, i hadn't really thought about them til now, but they are cute. i don't see a profile for them here, and haven't looked anywhere else, but you sound like you know about them.)
I have had mine for a couple of years I have always been fond of crabs and crays my girlfriends think I am weird.
You would need at least a 10 you have to have a heater either in the water or a reptile heater on the side of the tank.They are not that specific as long as its brackish up to to full salt. I keep 5 in a 20 they really dont fight they just run around waving their big claw around sometime they might push at each other but thats about it.It might be different if they were in small aquarium with a lot of them. I did once have a 30 gal long with guppies and crabs I just had it tilted so one side was sand. Hope this helps
