Hermit Crab Molting in Water Dish

Post by PacificPepper » Wed May 01, 2019 11:08 pm

Hello, I was just wondering if there is anything I should do with my hermit crab who just finished molting but it’s outer skin along with the crab himself is in the water dish, and he is out of his shell.

This means that something is very wrong in your tank. A crab out of it's shell will die.
