Vampire Crab

Last month I was at one of my local fish stores, and they had one vampire crab...I resisted and didnt buy it until further research. Well, now I want it, I cant get that beautiful purple crab out of my mind!!!

So, does anyone know anything about Vampire crabs??? I have searched online and not much is known except they stay small, molt, and that there is controversy over their habitat needing to be more like a fiddler crab's or more like a reptile's with less water and more land.

My lfs had it fully submerged in the tank and it seemed fine.

Also, any idea what kind of fish it can safely be housed with?
