    woohoo. it was a like 3 weeks before i've seen my first crab i got back in Dec. Hermie, he had a succesfull first molt with me!!! i new he was preparing for a molt cause he was growing a gell limb.

    I was giving them fresh waters since i'm goin' away from home for 5 days. and all the sudden saw a very familiar shell, picked it up and a darker crab was in it. so i got the crab to come out farther and it was Hermie!!! a darker color with no missing legs, i was sooo happy! although i'm on vaca for 5 days so i'm hoping my crabs will be aright! afterall they've been in worse conditions, atleast i have someone misting the tank twice a day. and making sure the food doesn't get moldy.

    so anyway, i will post picks of my new darker Hermie when i get back from vacation!!
