Possible Molting Disruption: UPDATE

Post by CrazyDiabetic » Wed Jul 08, 2020 4:43 am

After waking up to a lot of chirping, I decided to dig up my new crab and, lo and behold, theres my missing crab latched on to my new one who I assumed was trying to molt. I removed them both from the hole and managed to coax the one off of my new crab. I immediately moved my new one into the iso tank, and he seems pretty miffed, lots of loud chirping. At least hes making noise. I'm a new crab owner, where do I go from here? Out of the 23 who viewed the original post I figured at least someone would have some advice. I cant tell whether the new crab has dirt in his shell, do I try to help him clean it out? I'll let him do his own thing for now but I need some guidance on how best to make sure hes okay and on how to keep him that way.
