All of my small/medium crabs have taken about 4 weeks to molt. I've heard it can take up to four months on average though.

Okay. Don't doubt that I will be asking more questions until he is up. Thanks. c:

Any reccomendations for food he would like? (:
When can I move him back into the big tank? When he is done with his exo?
My other E is lonely with all those PPs.

Hey guys! So Dakota came up about a month and a half ago. Since, he has been up and down, mainly up. And been moving around, is he ready to move back in. I occasionally see a small piece of exo that wasn't eaten. But he has hardened up and is getting back his gorgeous colors!

If he's active and eating normally, I would move him back. Make sure you give him a dunk in the main tank's freshwater pool so he smells familiar to the other crabs.
