    Hey
    I was just wondering because I have had my 4 hermits for 3 days and they are my first ones so I wasn't sure of when the crabs first molt.
    Could anybody tell me.

    :D---Max---:D

    For smaller crabs they usually molt several times a year. It won't take them long but they will molt more often than bigger crabs. Jumbos might take over a month to molt but will do it once a year on average. Your crabs should most by Christmas or so at least if they are small. I would not worry though as long as they have enough substrate etc.:)

    Hey Mia
    Have a look at this website REMOVED NOT ALLOWED it will tell you about identification and it depends on how quick they grow to tell how big they grow,this is a hard question cause some grow faster than others. what are your crabs called???

    CrazyCrabGuy, it looks like your link has been deleted. I'm not sure why but CrabLover!, you can look at thecrabroom.com. It's in HERMEZ's signature and it has the ID cart etc. Also, it would be best if you made another thread because more people would be likly to read it etc.
