by red claw do you mean Pandinus cavimanus?
Those should be housed separately, they like to munch on each other.
Clear seal tanks are fine, they don't need a lot of room either, just a good few inches of substrate to burrow.

Common names are all but useless, so I'll assume you mean P. cavimanus. Pretty much what H. laoticus said; to house three of them you'll need three tanks.

Any tank is good, really . . . I'd suggest a medium Kritter Keeper.

if your going to get adult ones make sure if you use a critter keeper that the walls are a bit higher, they like to stand on their tails and grab onto the vents and cliffhang. I had to tape up the side vents when i had mine temporarily housed in one.
