    I don't know what is going on with my crab (Eeyore) which is the second smallest of my crabs.
    He went under about a week ago and there has been no sign of him. I have moved all the other crabs to a bigger tank. I did not want to dig him up because of everything I have read. There is no fish smell in the tank do you think he is molting or is there something wrong???

    Yep, I agree. He'll come up and say "where is everyone?".
    Watch at night to see if he comes up looking for food.

    Sometimes it may take a couple of weeks for a crabbie to molt. Just let him be.
