Re: Crab still buried and shell pulled up.

So update my other PP kevin went down the tunnel and back filled it. Gru's big shell is still on the surface and my E Dr. Nafario is looking for kevin. So its probably not good news.

Re: Crab still buried and shell pulled up.

It's a 55gal and yeah they always have access to protien and calcium. The spot where he chose to molt is more shallow than the rest of the tank. And since it's right under the water tank there is too much water in the sand right there and also mold from the access water and food that gets buried all...

So if they found his shell and he was molting would he have gone to his shell if he knew they were coming. One of the other cra...

So our Gru decided to molt right under the water dish. The other crabs dug a tunnel and his shell appeared empty. Now one crab is trying to pull his shell up out of the hole. I dont know if he's alive but I know when he's done molting he wont have his shell. I know you never dig up a crab. So should...

Re: Crab molting and another crab next to him.

So the one that was molting covered up his spot so I cant see him anymore and the other one has just continued on above him and is almost to the top. So with the mold and extra water I just add more substrate? There is still another one down somewhere so I've been afraid to mess it. But I may just d...

Re: Crab got out of tank!

No I didn't see any damage from the outside but he wouldn't come out of his shell and usually you cant keep him inside of it.

Re: Lost a leg!

It's a 60 gal and I'm a little confused by what you said on the heaters. The tank is pushed up against a wall the heaters are covered with foil shiny side facing them and then the foam piece is in between the foil and wall. My swamp cooler blowsbo. That wall so the foam helps keep the temp up. https...
