unusual shrink after molt

Post by crabs_lex » Sat Aug 29, 2020 9:40 pm

i had a small crab well not small but teeny and he molted overnight and i was like omg i know he’s small but..
then he’s like a weird orange color (not his norm) and very small like his pincher is less than half it’s old size
is it possible because he molted so fast that he still would be like this but i would not know because he’d be under the sub?
and by the way he’s been like this for maybe 3 weeks or so
