I don't think there are completely aquatic crabs. I would really recommend always having some sort of a way for them to get air.

The best product to do this I have seen at least are the Underwater Islands. They're pretty cool, I bet that you will like them. And I know your crabs will appreciate air :)

They are cute.. I know what you're talking about. They can survive freshwater if they have a branch or something to climb and sit to get air. But they don't thrive in that environment..If they did I'd have one already lol

Unfortunately, being kept fully aquatic in the store does not necessarily mean that is the way in which they ought to be kept. Fiddlers are frequently kept in fully aquatic tanks for display/sale and not a word is spoken at the time of sale to educate the purchaser as to the true nature of the crab's needs.

If you can find panther crabs they can live in a fresh tank in basic water. :)
