Freahwater bacteria are different than saltwater, you can't switch just by doing it slowly. The crabs can bother the snails, they want their shells, you could buy a bunch of small shells to leave in the tank so they can swap out. They molt and get bigger so in change need bigger shells. Fish food. Mysis Shrimp, Brine shrimp, Cyclopese. There are a few, try to stay away from flake. Spirulina algae is good.
