Re: Maybe molting?

If the buried crab has made a 'window', many of us will tape a piece of paper or something over it so it stays dark for them to molt. Thank you so much I will do that tonight. I also found my other one. I guess he switched shells for the 7th time and was in a different shell lol. https://uploads.ta...

I didn't move him I just saw him from the outside of the tank. He moved slightly so I figure he is still alive. My other Crab is hiding ...

Changing shells ALL the time

Hey guys, So I only have two hermit Crabs in a 10gal tank. One is a solid medium and the other is small to medium. The larger of the two Sebastian is super outgoing at night and brave. The little one Herb is more shy and I believe is currently molting (I hope) he is defiantly dog down in the substra...
