need help with saltwater....?

ok so is it okay to bring some saltwater from the beach? ill clean it with my aqueon quiet flow filter if its a yes. also i want to make a land for my fiddler crabs, so would it be best just to put the water half way and make a land for it? also do i need a powerhead? if i do can i just the hagen elite mini filter because i have 1 right now and its acting kind of like a powerhead. would these idea work?

So your talking about just having like a 10g tank, not filling it all the way, so you can keep a Fiddler Crap? You can do that.

I would think the ocean water to be a bit cloudy though
but I think it would work only thing would be hard to do water changes always having to run to the beach for water lol

37 gal bow front (saltwater)
octopus 150 skimmer
external penguin bio wheel 150 packed with cheato
ETH 200 watt inline heater
3 power heads 500gph
in line UV sterilizer

30 gal (brackish)
bio filter
under-gravel 2 power-heads 250gph

30 gal hex (freshwater)
bio filter
under gravel 2 power heads 170gph

Who ever said keeping fish was easy should have there head examined
It's more like a full time job !!!!
