Emerald crab


I was just wondering if anyone else has this prob. My Emerald crab was green when I got him, now most of his shell is white. Doesnt look like molting but not sure. Thanks

All water params are in the green

Salt will raise your blood pressure,
Saltwater will lower it .

Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?
I think so Brain, but there's still a bug in there from last time.

I got 1 about a year ago and it was pale green when I got it. It never comes out during the day but when I look in the tank at nite with the flashlight he's in there crawling around and he's now mostly tan to deep brown.
