2 Of My Crabs have Molted!!! I am beyond Excited~! But, I did have an issue w/ my medium sized crab. Okay, I have 4 crabs, 1 is small (maxie), 2 are a tad larger (still small), and 1 is med. The 3 smaller crabs All went down 2 molt, at about the same time, so my Med. crab (Lee) was all by himself. I started 2 notice that he had stopped eating. For at least 6 Days, he had not eaten a Thing! And as far as I could tell, he didn't come out of his coconut either. So I decided to get another crab. (I planned to keep the new crab in my 10G tank & then after a while put Lee in W/ him until the smaller crabs were done molting, then put them all in the main tank). So I ended up getting 2 new Bigger crabs! (well, they are Big 2 me). So Lee was staying in the main tank until I was sure of no mites, Etc. W/ the New crabs. Then, One day I looked in the main tank & Lee had burrowed under. So I left him alone, but I think he bumped into 1 of my molters, because a while later I looked in & my small Spiral shell crab Maxie (who molted fine w/ the spiral shell! but has now changed into a turbo) was up & crawling around! I could tell he had molted because he was a little pale, but his shell seemed to be firm. I was worried he had not eaten all of his Exo, but I had no way 2 tell. Then, Lee comes back up! So I watched them closely, & I saw Lee walking quickly up 2 Maxie, I knew Maxie was scared but I had to see what was going 2 happen. Lee went up 2 Maxie & crawled on top of him, grabbed him & then they Both flipped over & Lee was still holding onto Maxie, I am sure he was going to harm him, So I took Lee out & put him in ISO. The next day, Another Molter came up! (Two Successful Molts!! & my 3rd molter is fine too, I can see him through the glass) So - I Bathed my 2 new crabs And Lee in the same water & put them in the 10G. Lee is Miserable in there! the new crabs pushed him just a little at first, but that was all, as far as I know. He just hides & won't move or eat. I don't trust him to put him back w/ my Molting crabs. I am not sure what 2 do. I am considering taking 1 of the new crabs back. I planned 2 have them all live together, after the molting, but I admit I am scared. So any advice? Have I got 2 many crabs now? Also, is it possible for a crab 2 be stuck in a shell? 1 of my new crabs is At least Twice the size of his shell! His legs hang out, & they are SO squeezed together, that they are flattened across the top, & before he goes in, his eyes cross over each other! He has 0 room. When I bathed him, No air bubbles came out of his shell, he is Air tight in there! It is SO Sad! Yet, He did come out while in the water, & I had him in my hand W/ just his body under the water & his head out, he Loved it then! I held him like that 4 a while, & he didn't try to get out, or crawl up my arm, Maybe the water helped him not feel so cramped in the shell? I have pictures, so I may try to put some on here. I just know everyone will be Shocked when they see how big he is 4 the shell. He is A Beautiful crab though! He is all Red, With a gorgeous Bright purple claw. The prettiest crab I have seen - in person He is Very Sweet, Loves 2 be held too. I have plenty of shells for him 2 choose from. I am so sorry this is so Long! I have such mixed emotions right now! I am Over Joyed about my babies molting~! Yet, I am also worried about how this will all work out. I was so upset when Lee tried to hurt Little Maxie, is that because Maxie smelled different after the Molt? I was too scared 2 see what Lee's true intentions were, but like I said I could tell he meant business. So Please Any Help I Would be Very Grateful For! Thank you! - I will try 2 change my profile pic. to the 1 of the red new crab, if anyone wants to see it. I don't know how 2 add pic.s to threads, but I would Love to find out how! Then I could add several pic.s w/ different angles & when he is out too.
