Dont know anything about em. But I would assume like most crabs they will need water and land.

But I do know for sure that they are cool looking

5 gallon
3 MTS(sure to be mean more soon)

55 gallon

I have no idea at all what kind of crabs those are. Sure are cool looking, though!

Do they have appendages that look like they're meant for swimming? I would probably provide them with water to go in as well as land access, just to be on the safe side until you get more information. Many crabs need a brackish environment to survive, as well.
