Hermit crab molting
OK, I found the exoskeleton (I hope) of one of my hermit crabs in the tank today. I can't find the shell he was in so I'm hoping he just molted and is in hiding right now? He changed shells about 2 weeks ago or so and seemed to be doing fine. Am I panicing over nothing and just need to wait it out? I picked the crab (or his shed, whichever it is) out of the tank.

Welp, 4 days later, HE'S BACK! Came out of hiding within the last hour or so. I've been rearranging the kenya tree and hammer coral trying to get them in the right spots. I stirred up a little of the substrate while I was in there. Maybe that finally peaked his interest to emerge. Happy dad!
Here he is!
Here he is!
