from looking at their legs i would think that they are water only crabs. So I would lean towards making a land/water tank, if they seem to spend all thier time in the water then convert it to all water. I would go to my LFS and ask them if they know anything about taking care of crabs, I would think that for the most part they wouldnt be to different

even if they are aquatic crabs - like the Red Claw, you still may want room for them to climb up on land.
The Red Claw, although aquatic, does like to have some time when it's out of the water.
