First Successful Molt!

This boy has been underground since early December. When I woke up this morning I discovered his exit hole and found him relaxing in his favorite spot at the top of the tank:

As the title suggests I'm still very new to this, and it's super exciting to see it happen! :D

The first molt is always the most relieving for me!

My little boy came up that I've been stressing over. Just in time, too, because I'm putting in the new water dishes and more sub this weekend. Hope more don't go down!
