Moving a post-molt crab

Post by taylo00 » Fri Nov 16, 2018 10:38 pm

I’ve just upgraded to a 75 gallon tank. Everyone is moved over except for Joey, who was under and molting when i moved the others. He is top side and has his color back, darker than ever. When he first appeared he was ghost white. How long should i wait before i move him over with the others?

If he’s returned to the surface he can be moved immediately.
