    I have not seen my crabs in a few weeks. Sebastian dug down like 2 weeks ago and Sandy is ???? I did put some fresh coconut in the dish the other day...looks like someone touched it that night. Probably Sandy. I feel funny walking by the tank every so often and sniffing around :D. No odors, so I hope all is well.

    Anyone else got into the habit of sticking their nose in the tank to make sure everything is okay....or am I the only weird one here? lol

    I do it often too probably a little TOO often especially because we lost 3 early on to PPS so I am always afraid I will look in and find limbs falling off someone...it is almost as bad as worrying about your own kids!

    Yeah, it would be pretty scary to learn that one of your kids are missing an arm or a leg! :D

    Nope, not weird; I do it all the time. Especially the ISO tank.

    Thanks guys. Sandy is moving around. Saw her last night checking out the shell...but did not change :(

    Molting has a very distinct smell, like a chemical type smell, not really a fishy smell, Keep an eye out if that smell gets any worse.
