I'd be afraid that the crab would attack the betta.

If I were you, I'd ask questions about crabs in the invertabrates subforum of the Freshwater fish and Aquariums section of FishForum. There are probably people over there who can answer your questions better than we can here. (no offense to anyone here who knows about crabs).

Noooo way. Sorry but I think what you have is probably a Fiddler crab. They are very aggressive and will actually eat your fish!

I'm glad you asked too! I love it when people actually research BEFORE they get an animal. :)
