Exclamation Water/disease problems

My fish all died from velvet and I now only have shrimp and a mystery snail(both unaffected). I want to get a red claw crab. Should I do a 100% water change for the crab and other fish? P.S. where should I buy a red claw crab?

If you used any medications/treatments for the velvet, I would do major water changes to remove it, and possibly carbon filtration for a couple weeks too.

I've no idea where to buy livestock, I don't know where you live anyway; check your local fish stores, or online.

And, welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
