    One of my hermit crabs (smaller one) is getting ready to molt. It has moved into a bigger shell and today I bought some play sand for my hermies @ lows. The one that is getting ready to molt is hiding in my little hermit crab castle,and dug a hole under it.

    That's good, normal behavior. Make sure the sand does not dry out. I usually spritz my crabitats with a very mild salt dechlor solution. Sometimes with a molt crabs go up and down a few times, When the crab stays down don't be anxious if it takes awhile, like say, a month. Molting is stressful and sometimes it takes more time for a crab to get started and recover enough so that he can get back to his normal "Crabby Duties". Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!
