Shelly finished her molt without being disturbed. That’s a good omen, I’ve had 5 or so main tank molts with no attacks. Now with the small crabs its not an issue because they molt so fast, but the bigger crabs stay under longer and it would be difficult to clean the tank with them buried for a long period of time.

The new crabs have been named:

Indo in the painted shell is Oy
Other Indo is Kimba
Dark rugosus is Tula – short for tarantula
small gray rug is Musty
pale rug is Ermot

Kimba is still super shy so I’m not forcing him/her
