four or more inches should be put in to allow for digging. They love to climb and dig. I personally like to use a Eco earth substrate with calcisand mixture to allow for easier digging. It also keeps the substrate from going moldy. Be careful though. I don’t know how big or how many your crabbies are and you need to watch carefully for molters as cagemates can dig them up and eat them.
