I'm so happy she made it through!! Big congrats to you and her! It was amazing to see all the photos. Really glad you got such great ones. I hope she comes up soon. :) She's made it so far, it would be so sad if she didn't make it now. She's obviously a strong-willed individual, but I'm still going to send her good vibes in case she's molting again. :D

Try crushing some of her old EXO Into almost powder so its a little easier to eat 2 spoons should do the trick then mix it with peanut butter. I rember you saying that you had one like her that passed away. Maby this one will make it and you can join the crab nursing club :D Best of luck

Yep, still underground. *bites nails* She has to be pulling a back-to-back molt since she's been down so long this time.... I am really worried, but I've not got that "bad feeling" yet that's telling me to dig. Of course, she's by herself in the 10 gallon so she is perfectly safe. It's just up to her if she pulls through or not. Room is at a comfy 78 degrees where she is, and the sand is nice and moist. We're at like three weeks underground, so hopefully she won't take too much longer!

She's okay, but she hasn't come up yet. There were some odd smells coming from the tank and I was getting worried so I gave in and dug. Found her in a little cave near the bottom perfectly fine! I think she may have molted - her size is the same, but her color is different. It looks like she's been dipped in methylade (pinky-orange stain). It's very odd! Anyway, I covered her over with a dish and left enough space so she could dig out around it if she wanted to.
