Re: Bulldozer in rough shape

they will get used to each other after a while, but for now i would iso him until he decides to molt. i think they can regenerate antenna?

just keep them seperate until he feels comfertable, or at least molts. also, i rescued a crab with a missing claw, leg, and half leg so that is no biggie.
