    :eek: We're really worried about one of our hermit crabs, Shelly. She wont come out of her shell but she moves if we poke her. We're not sure if shes sick or dying or what... We dont even know if shes eating/drinking. Is she depressed? Or sick? Or what?!?:confused:

    OK we've decided
    she's stressed. We got Shely at the beach and it tok about 2 weeks to get a complete tank (ik ik a bad move)
    anyway she molted in a tank with just water and food... no sand. so she's stressed.. should we put her in ISO or what?any meds or special food?:confused:

    Do you have other crabs? Is your ISO tank setup properly? There are no meds that I know of that will help out the crab if he is losing his limbs due to stress. Sorry.
