    What the heck this time it is one of the orginal hermies and I thought he had died today so I picked him up to remove his remains~and out comes half the exo....yuck! So I cut a clear water bottle's end off and stuck it over him...is this the right thing to do?? I did cut a small hole in the top of the bottle so he got some fresh air. HELP!!! What is it with our hermies topside molting!!!!

    Do you have a tiki hut?Well if you do place it on a 180'degree turn that way nobody can hurt her/him.& if he wants to get a drink or a bite to eat he/she can.Do somethin like that or sometimes I'll just put them in iso.:D Hope it helps.

    The other crabbies will naturally want to eat the exo too. They can smell it and they will eat it. So its good (for surface molters anyway) to get the exo and crabbie alone together so he is undisturbed.

    I would also put a hut over him, your crabbie is going to need water.
