    Some people at Petsmart that fiddler crabs are more easy to pick up then hermit crabs.

    Well...they don't have shells to duck into. You can basically just heard one onto your hand.

    Personally I never handled my fiddler crabs. I was concerned about the massive claws. lol. Oh yea, and that reminds me.
    Boys have claws that are WAY too big for their body, and girls have claws that are just a little bit too big for their bodies.
    Males WILL fight eachother if you only have like three or four crabs, or if there isn't enough space in the tank.
    I just had three females in a 10 gallon, then upgraded to a 20 gallon but kept only the three females.
