You should never have taken them. No matter what you do they will die. They are used to an outdoor wildlife. Go to a pet store and tell them you stole them from their natural habitat and they will tell you the same thing I did. They need a big tank sponges soaked it water and I doubt they will eat pet store crab food. I am disgusted by you. You should have bought them from a pet store if you wanted them that bad.
