Re: Crab buried in moss

I don't think they will molt in the moss, but if your substrate isn't deep enough they might try and seek other options for molting. I wouldn't be worried though if he/she has only been down for a couple of days it was probably just de-stressing or resting :colors:

Re: Is my crab molting? Hasnt moved much in a few days

Yeah I understand that, I was just sugesting (sorry for spelling) that if keeping crabs long term is in mind you might need another tank not just for molting but also for if the crabs get sick or if they fight and can't live in the same tank

Removing Paint?

Hi fellow crabbers!!! I was wondering if there was a way to remove the paint from the crab's shell after it has changed out of it for future use? One of my crabs named Crusty is currently wearing a shell that is half-painted. Most of the paint is already chipped off and there is A BEAUTIFUL tan spot...

Re: Eaten alive

:molted:: Isolating them for a week would be a good idea just to make sure they are healthy! I always just mist my tank to keep the humitity it and it never floods

Re: Suggestions for backgrounds

You can purchase backgrounds for aquariums at a store if that is what you choose to do, there are some VERY beautiful options available. But if you wish to go with a natural background I understand that as well :colors: Good luck with your crabbies!!! https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1...
