Another successful molt!

Post by leah610 » Thu Aug 02, 2018 9:01 pm

Kai is back from her molt! She's so much bigger and now has slightly different colors. She used to be a lighter shade of purple all over, like lavender, with a hint of blue where her leg segments met the rest of her body. Now she's a darker shade of lavender and purple, the blue is brighter, and she's got two legs with a hint of pinkish-orange! It's crazy how much they can change. Here are some pics! She was chillin' in the moss pit when I found her.

I only have my two crabs, which makes it easier Image I'm still trying to decide if I want to expand the group though!
