    My crab didn't make it. He was in a too large shell and was alive for a while but never moved. Then today I found him - he had switched to a smaller shell but he was dead in it. He tried to hard to live by trying to switch into a new smaller shell but it was too late. Now I don't know what to do with my other crab -I think he's molting because I found several hollow legs around the tank .

    Is it ok to leave him in the tank even though another crab died in there?

    I think you'll be okay if you just scoop out an area around where the crab died. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. These small creatures claim our hearts so quickly!
