    My second crab has died during the molting process.This is the one I thought was dead to begin with but was still alive. :( I have learned though when a crab does molt it best not to disturb it at all. I had the habit of checking on them and playing mommy making sure they had food underneath them and water close by. On a good note I picked up another crab today at Pet Co to join the remaining two crabs. :) they seem to be doing well. They are hanging out in my empty bathtub right now getting in some exercise and playtime. :)

    I am very sorry to hear about your loss. It might be hard but you are correct. They are best left alone to molt. Again very sorry to hear about your loss.

    You have alot of support on this forum because I believe we've all suffered loss. We need to accept that we didn't bring our friends here, we tried to give them the best life we could while they are with it. I'm sorry you lost your friend.
