Maybe Molting

Post by Coral1991 » Tue Jul 02, 2019 5:55 pm

Hey guys just wondering both my crabs have been burying themselves. The larger one is completely buried hasn't come up in days. Tank conditions are good 82 degrees and humidity 83 percent. I know they can take up to a month to molt . The smaller one is about an inch or two under. What do yall suspect.

They can take months to molt! Sometimes only weeks. If there is enough substrate, they will dig until they are happy. Just watch them and observe.
