  1. Sheldon finally changed out of that horrible painted shell. I grabbed it while he wasn't looking and trashed it! His color is also different so I think he may have molted!

    Oh YES a stunning shell change I love those :flower:
     
  5. I guess Sheldon didn't like that shell because he switched again! I get so excited about shell changes because I don't see many :spunky: Here he is sporting his new look...
    I did thumbnails so you could click on them and see them better.

    I love his eyes in this pic

    Here is a thumbnail of his first pic. Do anyone think he looks like he molted???? This would be my first molt and I am unsure of what he would look like afterward. His color seems almost more orangy than before.

    congrats!!!! It does look like he's a little diff. in color. There is one thing I noticed over the years from my previous crabs, when they were newly molted, they all had those black tips on the bottom of their legs. Sometimes, when you buy them in the store they have some on some of their legs but not all of them. Some crabs look like they have none. But when they molt their usually all present again. I don't know what the name for that is, anyone else know? Hope this helps ya! :party:

    Ohhh, Sheldon looked great in the first choice, but then again, any shell is better than a painted one! Look at his toenails or tips of his legs, if they are needle sharp then he molted for you.

    I like the smooth fox shells, too, so I approve of his first choice. :flower: BUT, he still looks adorable in the second one!
