Re: Molt

Why would his claw(s) being doing this? The fact that he ate quite a bit last nite is encouraging.

Re: Molt

Re: Big crab

I went there & got some as well as hobby lobby. They have good ones too. His [emoji102]are clear still. No cloudy or ash look.
Can the tub be covered w the lid & punch holes? I read they breathe thru their gills so no need to punch.
