My only crab up has been active all day. I am watching him currently from my WyzeCam since I am on vacation, and I am getting so many motion alerts

He got stuck on a random command hook and looked like he was waving for help. He eventually stretched enough and reached with the right leg to grab the netting nearby.

Lol. Yeah. But I know if I tried to get him off he'd hold on for dear life. So I had to let him figure it out.

My two small purple pinchers are down molting! I hate the wait, but it is so worth it when they come up and are bigger and darker!

Yeah I get excited when he goes down to molt too but I miss him so much because it takes him forever to molt. He comes up so much bigger, darker and beautiful though.

My crabs took the air stone off the tube and dragged it onto the second level.

My largest seems to have a new goal in life to escape his tank. I don't know how many times I have seen him try to climb the wall up to the top after he figured it out the first time. Then got mad when I rearanged the lay out so he couldn't. The lid is a old aquariam one with the plastic pieces punched out.
I have owned Hermit Crabs for 2 Years

I have 1 E named Monkey and 2 PP named Shy Guy and Little P

I also own 1 PP named Dory who stays in my classroom
