If I leave my crabs in bucket with holes in bottom will they live for 24 hours in a cool dark basement? Thanks

you'll have dead loss.  Better a basket than a bucket.  In the bucket there will be very little air circulation.  Crabs out of water breathe air.  Put them in a basket with wet towels over it and load the top of the basket with ice

This is how it's going to go.  After I kick your A$$ i'm going to run you through the wood chipper and put you in containers in the freezer to use in my crab pots!  The really sad part?  You let an old man kick your A$$!!!
