I just noticed you said he just went down. Hope he's having a nice time, whatever he's up to! :D

Molts are nerve-wracking!

Oh my! How stressful! Two of my jumbos just went down for their first molt with me (one is an Indo too) and to say I’m a nervous momma is an understatement! I adore these two especially, and will be heartbroken if something goes wrong for either of them. (There’s no specific reason they wouldn’t come thru, but I’m worried anyway!)
I don’t think it gets too much easier with time... maybe in a few years I’ll stop worrying so much?!?

Same here! I just constantly fret about if his tunnel collapsed, or if he got too cold, or was just old (I have no idea what his age is), or if he had enough calcium, or if he is remembering to change his underwear. But I always feel a tiny glimmer of hope every time I peek into the tank!

Good luck on your big boys! How long have they been down so far? I'd love to hear when they come up!

I think you're right - the worries will probably never go away!
