look up vampire crabs aks carnival crabs. i think they are mainly terrestrial so redclaws are probably a better idea, but it's something fun to look into anyway.

All the technology for fish care has been around for billions of years.

everything I can find on them says they need brackish water, and that would ruin my idea of pumping the water over the terrestrial plants (above the water line) as filtration.

Well, I decided on plants and stocking.

I'm going to set it up as Brackish, with 1.008-1.011 salinity.
It will be well planted, with:
Variegated Acorus(Acorus gramineus var. 'variegatus') Terrestrial/Emersed
Cryptocoryne Pontederiifolia Terrestrial/Emersed
Crinum Calamistratum Submerged
Lilaeopsis novae-zealandiae (Microsword) Terrestrial/Emersed
Glossostigma Terrestrial/Emersed
Java Moss Terrestrial/Emersed
Java Fern 'Windelov' Undecided
Anubias Nana Emersed
Azolla Floating
Varius Crypt species (already had) Submerged, will allow to grow emersed
Hairgrass Submerged

Stock will be 4-5 fiddler crabs, and 4-5 Hawaiian Red Shrimp, AKA Opae ula, AKA Anchialine Shrimp (Halocaridina rubra)

Halocaridina rubra are super interesting- you should take the time to google them.

Thanks for everyone's help.
