Trooper is DEFINITELY molting! Today I opened the ISO to mist the sand over him again and decided to get the flashlight and peek through the side and bottom of the tank. Before all I could see were orange leg tips. Today I could see pinkish/white and I could see if from the bottom and side. Nothing distinguishable but definitely has to be a soft new exo! Yah! Now let’s hope he finishes up soon and comes topside for some eats and water

I haven’t seen Sandy for two days! I don’t know if she’s buried and just hanging out or if she’s gone under to molt with no warning whatsoever. How to find her in that big tank with out digging her up is beyond me.
