portable live bait bucket

ive just purchased one with an air pump.
this might sound like a stupid question,
do i need sea water for the sandeels or will tap water be ok?
how long will the eels stay alive in a bait bucket?
could i keep live prawns/shrimp in it?

thanks for any help
john :)

crab eating crab?

i heard recently that crab wont eat crab,
is there any truth in this?
i thought the little sods would eat there own mother if they had the chance.
has anyone got any ideas {except floating beads and staying at home} to stop getting my baits nailed by crabs?

cheers
