Is it ok to put fiddler crabs in the same tank as red claw crabs?

fiddler crabs need a place to come out and dry out, meaning some dry land.

what is a red claw crab?

Ya I have the tank half full with a beach on one side and water on the other so they can come in and out as they please. I dont know if it is the right name but they are the ones with two red claws that are big like the fiddler.

From what I remember, Fiddler Crabs are brackish and Red Clawed Crabs are Freshwater. I may be confusing yours with another specie though.

If it is the case, then no.
