Bully

PostAuthor: Sherman12 » Wed Jul 11, 2018 11:09 pm

One my crabs likes to bully the other. The bullied crab hasn’t shown itself recently compared to the the bully crab which is very active often. I know I shouldn’t dig them out. Should I just wait and be optimistic?

Edit Fixed it to shouldn’t

Agreed. If a crab is buried, don't dig!

You would never want to dig unless there is a flood, as mentioned or ants or other similar creatures
