Size of tank you mentioned for a paludarium to house 5 crabs is small. You need around a two footer tank.

Here is the procedure to make paludarium
1. First of all finalize a layout for underwater and land area.
2. Make background.
3. Choose suitable plants.
4. Following these for more information

+1 Rajiv Ji. Livestock addition/purchase should be done last. Many of us have learnt the hard way and still learning (due to impulse purchases oopsbig )
