o.k, so I thought one of my Straws, Mr. Krabs, was down destressing after a little scuffle with Harpell. After all, he just molted about a month ago. Well, I caught him coming up today, and watched to welcome him back. Little did I know I was soon to be horrified. Not only did his recently acquired beutiful bright red color turn to a very light fleshy pink, but his left third leg, (second from the claw), was deformed. The tip of it is pointing up. The leg is basically shaped like a "u". It also appeared to have a "chunk" missing from the rear of it. I felt so bad. He had decided to resurface between the water bowl and the wall of the tank, which is his usual digging spot. Poor thing had the hardest time getting out... that leg can't hold on to anything. I finally reached in and moved the water bowl and he was able to make it out. My question is, does anyone have a clue as to how this could have happened? Is it my care? Did someone attack him in mid-molt? Or did he just have a bad molt? I feel horrible, poor thing looks so pathetic trying to climb around. I know there is nothing I can do about it, but I really wish I could help him. Also, does anyone know if his leg will ever go back to "normal"? Maybe in a new molt? I'm going to be keeping a close eye on him for the next several days.
