I think it would be better for then to dig, as it is a tiny bit warmer under ground ;)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

But if the crabs are underground and the heat source is above ground, wont the air be warm and the ground cold? I could be wrong...

The ground traps the heat, thats why in the night and you go down to the beach, dig your toes in, the sand still warm - if you do night fishing, it prefect! :D
