    changing water out, cleaning poo ect.. decided better lift out the dead log and really get around it since it is butted up in the corner by the uth, well guess what there is a crab buried in the corner! I thought my 2 were on the opposite end of the tank one is under a rock & I thought this one was in the cave! I took some slate rock and put it over his hole, I didn't cave it in, but I didn't notce any movement either or notice any smell :dontknow: he has been missing for a while. Not going to go snooping, not going to go snooping, not going to go snooping!

    you just keep telling yourself that!!!! I've had 2 missing for a month now.
    The other night my nightglo bulb burned out and it got down to 70.Yiks!
    So I had to rearange everything so that their bed would be right above their uth that is on the side of the tank. So I hope I didnt disturb the 2 having to move everything! I have gone to the pet shop and got another bulb.

    Did you by any chance prop the slate up so he can get out? In his weakened condition from molting he may not be strong enough to dig another exit. :flower:
