    Never EVER dig up a molting crab!!!!!!!  Are they both molting, or just one at this time?  Keep checking on them, make sure they are not trying to attack each other.  But once they dig down, don’t dig them up, they will die from the stress.

    Uh, I had too because I found out 2 crabs were attacking a molter under ground and I didn’t want them to kill it. I put him in ISO so he should be fine

    Putting in ISO should be ok, as long as he’s alone in there. In dire circumstances I have had to do that, and haven’t had any issues yet. it’s a good thing you caught them before the other guy ate him. Molters give off a fishy smell, that is delicious to the other crabs if they come across a molter in their digging expeditions.

    He is kinda pale……….. He will get his coloring back though. I need an upgrade because I own 33 (going to be 34) And a 29 or 30 gal and a 40 or 50 gal. The last thing I need is them to start eating each other. here is my 40 or 50 gal. I got everything inside it (including the crabs) for free! it is at least 1,000.00 worth of things. I LOVE FREE STUFF!
