I received two of these this morning. They are like a native Shore Crab, but completly black, and are around 6-7cm across. I have no idea what species they are yet, hopefully im able to find out soon though, theres both true freshwater as well as species that release their eggs into the sea found in Madagascar.

They are being kept in a heated plastic storage container at the moment, sand substrate, and a small water area. Both Crabs quickly entered the water area as soon as I introduced them to their setup though, so they may need a larger water area.

I should be able to get some pics later hopefully.
