Re: Surface Molt Or Dying?

I have cuttlebone, eggshells, and lobster exo for calcium. I don’t think food would help her atm tho, because she’s still hiding in the hut, seeming very lethargic. Who knows if she is actually surface molting or just very lethargic. It’s weird because my first crab who had PPS was relatively active...

Re: Surface Molt Or Dying?

She isn-t completely limp. Her legs just looked wobbly and limp compared to an active crab

Re: Molting in a Moss Pit (With a catch)

OK thanks. Also is that crab in your pfp a strawberry or a PP? If its a PP, it has really nice colors

Re: Molting in a Moss Pit (With a catch)

He would usually go in there for at most only a few hours. I am almost certain he is molting in there.

Molting in a Moss Pit (With a catch)

I have a crab which has currently been in a moss pit for over a week. I know he is not destressing because I've had him for 5 years and nothing bad happened to him. I know crabs sometimes molt in moss pits but I have an issue. My moss pit is quite small. https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore/prod...

Tunnel Collapse Caused by a Drop?

I recently dropped a hard cover book right next to the tank (it’s normally on the kid to prevent escapees) Could this have collapsed one of my molters? They have been molting for a month now so it would be right in the middle of their molt. I notice a little bit of the moss pit “jumped” a bit.

Re: Mites?

Thanks for responding. They are not clinging at all, they run on him as well as inside the shell. They vary in sizes and are all white

Mites?

I don't know if this should go in emergency or not. But I adopted a new hermit crab a couple of days ago. When I got her I didn't see any mites, and I definitely would have noticed them. Now recently after emerging from sleeping in the moss pit for a few days I notice these bugs on her. But I have s...
