Six weeks molt

Post by Amlesa » Fri Nov 23, 2018 9:48 am

My littlest crab is back after six week! And I can finally move her over to the 20 gallon I had set up weeks ago. I had kept the 10 gallon going hoping she would come back up and almost gave up last week bc I needed to move it. So glad I didn’t give up and go digging. Now I realize how long it truly takes. She is such a small crab I thought it would only take 2-3 weeks. So exciting, it’s like Christmas morning lol

She changed into a shell that is way to big for her. When she tucks in you can’t even see her anymore. But she’s been eating all day. So glad we made it thru the first molt
