It's small, but you could use it for a food tank. Do you have any filtration or pump? Otherwise you'll have to do water changes.

Just FYI, I've found it convenient to keep crabs in a low round bowl that the pet stores sell (I think it was eight or nine dollars) because it's easy to pick up (it's a one-piece glass bowl) and easy to change the water.

Id maybe add a few rocks and stuff for the crabs to hide in as they (well mine did) fight a lot sometimes
