Post molting concern

My PP Wehi just came up after a successful 60 day molt. I was so happy to see her but she was acting very sluggish and quickly reburied herself that evening after eating a little. Do I need to be concerned?

I do have other crabs: one PP slightly larger then Wehi but keeps to herself, Two much smaller PP, and two Ecuadorian crabs slightly smaller than her.

I am not very experienced but I’d say it was normal. They use so much energy during a molt....hopefully someone with more knowledge replies soon but if it was me, I’d make sure calcium and proteins were available....I’d also give some organic honey (regular if u don’t have it right now) in a little dish or shell to boost energy. Congrats on the successful molt!
