Re: All 3 crabs buried in same place?!

I find mine molt in the first couple of days they are down then just rest the next couple of weeks, but mine are Aussies so maybe their habits are different to PPs

Re: All 3 crabs buried in same place?!

I would suggest leaving them alone, I think if they were going to hurt her they would have just gone down her hole instead of digging their own. They probably all just feel that it is the safest place to molt. Give Cinamon another week and if she still hasn't appeared I would carefully dig her up an...

Re: I almost got to watch a shell change but......

I've been lucky enough to catch a couple of shell changes on video. When I can see someone poking around on the shell shelf and checking them out I put my iphone on the glass above them and leave it videoing so I don't miss it. :-)

Re: Post-molt behavior change.

Maybe just spending some time recovering. One of mine (an Aussie) recently moulted and spent about 3 weeks just sleeping, on the surface but we put him in isolation. Now he is the most active crab in a tank of 11, I'm starting to wonder if he ever sleeps because he seems to play all day and all nigh...
