    I have had my crabs for well over a year. I have a couple of crabs that have rotted out spots on their claws. They are pretty deep too. Also, I have noticed that some of them have lost limbs or the tips of their limbs. Just yesterday I noticed that I have mites! :aargh: So, I'm going to clean everything out, replace substrate, give crabs baths, etc. However, is there anything I can do to help the crabs with their limbs? I don't know if this was the result of the mites or not. There were NO mites at all until this week, and the limb problem has been going on for a while. Thanks!
