    We haven't seen him for about a week, we know he's burried under the water bowl. We just have to wait for him to be ready to come out? Lola is lonely :(

    Aww :( I know, my crab was lonely too, when my other one went down. My other one went down for more than 3 weeks. We were all very lonely :( You're gonna have to just wait I'm afraid.

    As for the water bowl, I'd be careful it won't spill over. Maybe move it, so you can still comfortably change water without fear of squishing your molter...

    I love the name "Hermie"!!! Even though it is often used as a hermit crab name, it is still one of the best!!!
