    Deadly came up from his molt a month ago and then he buried down and a month later he's still down for the second time! I saw nothing wrong with him the time he came up from his first molt... And I don't think he comes up at night. Maybe because he just grew a leg back on his first molt and he's going down to molt again to strenghten it? And everyone else is buried TOO. It's sooo empty in the tank.:(

    My crab Darcy did the same thing. He molted in February then came up for about a month or two before going back down. IDK why he went down again because he looked fine. He came back up from his second molt awhile ago and seems great now. He's more active than he's ever been.

    I'm sure Deadly will be okay! It's so hard to wait sometimes though, isn't it?

    Yeah but its a little different he molted and came up and then a day after he came up he reburied! I'm pretty sure he'll be fine but I as wondering if that was common/

    they can re-bury after a molt to chill a bit more or do a back to back molt- not uncommon :)
