It wont be every 2 1/2 weeks all the time. It`s sporadic as far as how often. Good to hear he`s doing good though.

It's just been every 2 1/2 weeks for the past 3 times since I got him, that's all If it's normal/natural to do it so often then I'll stop worrying!

He hides most of the time, but occasionally comes it, especially at feeding time! I also drop some sinking pellets in for him which he pounces on! His new legs/feelers are always complete, so I think he's doing well...

And again today, 2 1/2 weeks after! Hehe.

I have fairly high nitrates at the mo, should I be getting the molt out with this in mind, or will it be ok leaving it in?

Mine molt constantly...I just leave it in...it disappears within a day or two, I guess crabs must munch it up.

Yeah, mine's gone now. He seems happy enough, grabs food I drop in etc., comes out a little bit (though hides mostly, but this is their normal behaviour!).
