Can I move a molting crab?

Post by Thatfranke » Tue Jun 25, 2019 5:41 pm

Hello, I have to go out of town tomorrow morning and have made arrangements to leave my crabs with a trusted friend. One of my crabs is currently molting in an isolation tank. Is it safe to move him or will this disturb his process?

What's the need to move him? He's down molting. How long will you be gone? How long has he been down?
