and you said he wasn’t moving for how long? a few days?
He stoped walking around about 4 days ago and is completely unresponsive as of yesterday... mentally prepared for the worst at this point, just hope he’s not suffering.

and since he seems like a small crab maybe he’s preparing to molt i’m not sure tho
The only problem is that he won’t eat... ever.

Re: VERY lethargic crab, no longer moving.

If I were to get a heating pad anyways, can I use something like a shoulder heat pad or will I need a specific kind of pad? Will the heating pad I have work for the moment until I can get a real one?

Re: VERY lethargic crab, no longer moving.

Also, the first thing I thought of was humidity and temp so I just bought another gauge, just in case the one I’m using isn’t working or something.

Re: VERY lethargic crab, no longer moving.

I have a thermometer/hydrometer next to the bottom (near the substrate) and it’s like a box shape. Also, I live in Arizona so the average of 80 is maintained all day never dropping below 80.
