Naked crab

Post by Cottman26 » Mon Sep 16, 2019 5:33 pm

Sooo... Came home to one of my crabs walking around nude. Do I do anything? Hes got 6-8 options for new shells but he didnt take any. I can see now he was too big for the shell he was in.

You should post this in the emergency section and fill out the emergency template so we can see what your conditions are. He needs to be reshelled immediately. If there are other crabs in the tank, he needs to be isolated with a couple of shell choices. Rinse them out to make sure there's no dirt in them. Someone with more experience can advise more.
