It is no wonder this species is called Fiddler Crab (scientific name: Uca minar). The distinctive big claw which resembles a fiddle clearly demonstrates it. Fiddler Crab is hardy and prefers a brackish environment. Native to intertidal mud flats, lagoons, and swamps of Florida, Fiddler Crab thrives in the conditions of somewhat salinity. They are semi-terrestrial hence, creating an area above the waterline for them to crawl is no less importance. Like other crabs, they love hiding places and climbing areas. That means putting some rocks, driftwood or other decorative materials serving such purposes is highly encouraged. Nevertheless, make sure they still have some open spaces to ‘stab’ and burrow.

Of all the interesting facts about Fiddler Crab, you may have heard of its unique communication method. By using that big claw, it can give its presence signal to other crabs by raising or lowering it. Such interaction makes it hard for you to take your eyes off them.

Fiddler Crab is a calm and quiet creature on most occasions. However, it does not mean it won’t be aggressive. When keeping it with other crabs, you should often notice if they fight with each other (generally due to territory and courting female issues). If it happens, they need to be separated into different tanks. Further, be careful while choosing their ‘neighbors’ as it tends to regard small species as food.

Disappointed, but willing to try again

On arrival, one of my three crabs was moving around; the other two, still inside the bag, were on their backs, and motionless. I opened the bag to see if they were alive (I didn't think to take a picture first, which means I cannot get my money back, which is ok), and confirmed that those two were dead. The living female seems to be alright, and I have her acclimating now. I want to order again, but I really would like to know how often this happens. The "100% Live Guarantee" made me think it'd be unlikely for me to receive dead animals, but I understand it can happen. Again, I want to try and order from this seller again; I'm just saddened that 2/3 of my order was dead on arrival.

Healthy fiddler crabs

Ordered two fiddler crabs, one for each of my kiddos. They both arrived very healthy. Packaged great and arrived on time.

Will definitely use this site again.

Fiddler crabs

I have made 2 orders they always arrived alive... And they lived several months had a good life in a large aquarium with brackish water and land areas... They only have a life span of about 2 years.. they arrived adults so life expectancy was not long .. I still have 1 female left of the original order but she was younger I do believe so she's still going strong... I've been thinking about getting more so she won't be lonely . I kept both males and females together... The males would try to fight but they never hurt each other one would always retreat... Just make sure they can't get out cause they will try... They are fun pets and my grandkids enjoy watching them .. definitely recommend from this company!!
