    I have 2 crabs that are the exact same size. They both buried themselves on the same day over a month ago. One came back up and had molted, she's been up for about 2 weeks. I still haven't seen the other at all.

    Is that normal? How come the other one is still down there??? Should I be worried?

    Each crab is unique, so molting time will vary for each individual. I wouldn't worry about it until it starts to smell really bad. Good luck with the molters! :)

    yup. as long as you dont have a nasty fishy smell id say let him rest, he may just be going through a tough molt. make sure you provide saltwater and extra treats for your little buddies
