bad crab

I cant believe one of my smaller hermit crabs tore off a bigger scarlet red crab's legs only leaving it with a claw and a leg. bummer.. didnt know that crabs can be so brutal. hope the dude survives.

If he survives, he will grow back the legs at next molt. Can you isolate him for now to prevent further damage? he need one claw to feed himself.

its not a molt cause i took the crab and placed him in my qt. he only has one claw and a leg left. and i have to look at him everyday to flip him back cause he doesnt have enough legs to move him self as much.
