    I came home from work today to find my crab Jimmy out and about. I'm so happy he's back and not dead. He was under for almost a month.His legs look much brighter than before. The only prob is that he was on top of the stick and when he saw me he got scared and fell off and into the water bowl- it was a pretty big drop. I hope he's ok.

    What should I do for him now?

    Hehe, he probably got a little dizzy.

    Sounds like he is doing well. Just keep up the good work! Have fun with your crabbie!

    Sounds like he molted - they fall all the time in the wild- there is nothing you can do- rarely are they fatal but high drops can result in this. Within the tank is usually ok- give him lots of ways to get around- sticks, nets, climbing wall etc etc
