    Hi everyone. I had a crab that molted last week. I have lost two others during a molt so I was hesitant to move her into an ISO. Basically I put a piece of cardboard in the 10 gallon tank to seperate it. The molt went well and she's up and about eating/drinking/ate exoskeleton. Well I went in to refresh food/water and to my surprise one of the crabs who was not supposed to be in there was. The molted crab seemed fine and so my question is: Can I just go ahead give the molted crab a quick bath and make them all one big happy family again? Thanks!

    Once he has been up for a day or so it should be fine. He probably dug a little tunnel under the cardboard:).

    So no bath right? There is so much pro/con postmolt bathing. From what I can tell, the crab that snuck into my cardboard ISO ;) didn't bother the crab who molted a week ago, but I'm ultra conservative and a normal worried crab owner. Opinions?

    I would give them all a quick dip together so they smell the same.
