And the some black stuff came otu, it think it was poo so I grew the poo in the trash. Then I realize the crab was alive, will it live?!?!?!?! I'm not sure!!! I need help, I buried it again because I. Read that crabs are vulnerable in attack inthis stage. Help!!!!!

    You shouldn't burry him. When they bury they make a little air pocket around them so that they have breathing room. If you just pack EE over him, he might just suffocate. Just put him in a hidey and leave him be. Add some eggshell in there for calcium, since you don't have the exo anymore. That would be your best bet.

    Good luck
