Yeah like I said when the lights, came on that's how it looked. The polys came out but it never got as big as it was then all of a sudden it done it again

Strange. Don't know why one side is fine and the other is retracted. Just watch it, I would hope in a couple days it would be fine.

You sure the crab didn't just molt? A bigger hermit could have done it. I suspected a brittle star of doing that same thing to one of mine.

Do they shed their entire half of their body where they have no claws or anything?

I'm sad now. If I catch my brittle star killing my crabs he's gonna be missing a few legs

Its shell was off in the back for a while then I seen something floating around and my clowns were messing with and it was his claw half

Yeah it sounds like he's a goner. Could have been another hermit crab.
