    Since we have had our crabs (2 months now) our one crab, Spongebob changes his shell at least 2 times a week, somtimes twice in one day. Is this normal? The other 3 crabs we have seem to be happy with the shells they have but for some reason Spongebob just keeps changing. He has one shell he keeps going back to. I have lots of shells in the tat for them, about 10. Has anyone ever had this happen before?

    Nothing to worry about. PPs are known to change shells frequently while Es don't change until they're busting at the seams.
