Good News!!!!

Crusty has a few inches of substrate left to dig and he will be back to the surface after a 1 1/2 month molt!!! :clap: :cloud9:. I've missed him so much , still waiting for Scuttle to be back to the surface. Hopefully I will be able to see Crusty re-surface from the sand. This has been my first experience with the molting process so I'm very excited!!! :banana: He was all the way at the bottom of the tank so I saw him a little bit throughout his molt but not much. Now he has a little window about 2 cm. from the surface and I can't wait to see him again!!! :banana: :clap: :cloud9:

This morning I found his old shell on top of his hole, and he is now in a BEAUTIFUL green turbo shell!!! :clap: He's still deciding if he wants it or a conch shell but he seems happy and healthy :molted::. I will pick him up and observe him as soon as I can but I don't want to stress him in his first few days back up. :cheer:
