    The 3 molters i had are all done with the exo and look like their new exo has hardened and they'll be ready to surface soon, and i know i still have one down who is getting ready to moltĀ  for sure. When should i transfer the hermies over to the new 40g tank? I know you never ever dig them up, so should i transfer them as they surface? I have 10 in all. I just want to check before i do anything that might stress them.
    (the new tank is beautiful! pics soon)

    I am SO glad you asked this question xD
    I'm gettin ready to go from 20tall to 35 and have 2 of 3 under.
    I was gonna get some new crabs but my bf wont let me till the new tank is set up.
    So I'l just wait for them to surface as well, it's been....a month? I think

    I've got 6 of 10 into the new tank now=) they seem happy, still confused about the moss pit since they didn't have one in the other tank, but they'll get used to it=)
