Re: Not sure if it’s an emergency or normal?! Newbie here

i agree they are probably just appreciating their new home :) when I first got my crabs they spent a few weeks digging around & destressing before their first molt, so even if they are down longer than a usual molt that can be normal.

Re: New crab dropped all limbs

poor guy, I hope he makes it. :( if he's lost all limbs he might not be able to eat on his own. I've heard of pple on here hand feeding honey on a q-tip when that happens, maybe try to see if he'll take food from you?

Re: Humidity help

What kind of lid do you use? And how dry does the substrate feel when you touch it?

Larger water pools or adding bubblers to the pools can help.
