Did you dig him up yet?
How does he look? What did you find?
He seems to be okay, no bad smells or anything. It actually looks like he hasn't even molted, like he's still in his shell like he was before going underground; then again I don't know what they look like when molting underground, only ever seen ones that molted on the surface in pics/videos

He was probably just de-stressing or hanging out.

Oh that's such a relief. Do as C suggested, putting him into a temporary container, and getting the tank set up properly. He won't be out of the woods yet, and will need good quality foods, including protein and calcium. Is he moving around?

He has hardly moved from where he is in the iso tank

Heads up - two topics have been merged since they are about the same issue. Sorry for any confusion caused.

It would be helpful for you to fill out the template so we can help better.

Are any crabs down molting?
What’s hit current humidity reading? Any recent changes in external conditions?

In the meantime, I would suggest airing it out a bit by removing some of the foil around the lamp.

Ok so Seewee’s last bath is tonight and I’m
nervous. He seems to be enjoying the baths but stays in his cave most the day and night as far as I can tell. His food looks untouched but there’s been a sudden increase in saltwater consumption and he’s not staring out the side of the iso anymore. Yesterday and today his saltwater bottle cap was completely empty and the fresh water next to it looked barely touched.

Currently his food dish has dried kelp, crushed cotton seed, green sand, crushed legumes& lentils, cuttle bone, dried shrimp, bee pollen, honey, fresh broccoli & grape, and one honey nut Cheerio (to try to lure hi out of the cave).

This photo is from his bath this morning. He’s looks the same too I think.

Any thoughts?

Lol! :lol:
I have had pets in the past, but my family can’t have any furry or feathered ones due to allergies. I usually try my best to help and currently trying to set up a crabitat. I also try to treat others with Love!❤️
