First time molt

Post by Garrow67 » Wed Mar 27, 2019 7:49 am

So my biggest has been down for about 3 weeks, my smallest 2 weeks, and my other two have officially been down about a week and a half. I am stressed out a bit as none of them have molted for me before.... How do you guys deal with the stress of not knowing if your little dudes are ok?

It gets easier as the time goes by, and as more molts happen successfully. I just concentrate on keeping all the tank conditions ideal, as that's really the only thing I have control of when they are under.
