Fiddler crab with sorority?

I saw today they are good for algae control. How are they with bettas?

Fiddler crabs need salinity in their water, which will kill a betta in the long term.

Fiddlers require a dry land area and brackish/salt water. They would not be a good match for a sorority. What about orange dwarf crayfishes? They're kind of cool and look like lobsters. Or if your sorority has been set up a while you could do cherry shrimp.

Thai micro crabs would quickly become fish food. If you want algae control go for nerite snails.

Nerite Snails and Amano Shrimp destroy algae like its nothing...fiddler crabs come from the ocean and bettas are freshwater.

I saw it on a website but they didn't mention the salinity. Maybe I will try the crayfish. I think some of my girls are too mean for shrimp they are picking on my mystery snail a little bit. Something with hard shell would be good. Algae isn't a problem yet but I like to think ahead.
