    I found Katie under the food dish while I was cleaning. She looks to be not fully hardened yet as her BP is a light lavendar color. She only had the BP of her exo left to eat. I moved it and her to the Iso tank but now I'm wondering if I should have just left her in the main crabitat? I thought maybe it would be best to let her harden in the Iso and do a little shell shopping if she wanted to. But now i'm worried that I may have stressed her needlessly by moving her to Iso when she's already done the deed.

    Should I just go ahead and leave her in the Iso until she hardens up sufficiently?

    She should be fine in the ISO. In fact if I find one of mine has come up but still looks soft, I put them in the ISO for a few days. All of mine main tank molt too.

    Also, don't worry if she doesn't finish that BP-quite a few of my crabs don't eat theirs. Just make sure she has access to plenty of calcium rich food.

    Thanks wendy! She is hiding under the food dish in the Iso and nothing has been touched, so I'll just leave her alone until I see that the sand/food has been disturbed.
