Vampire Crabs


I just bought two vampire crabs and I need advice. I got them about 2 weeks ago. One seems very alert and active the other is not so. Im wondering if the other one is ok or what I can do? Yesterday said potentially sick crab was laying upside down and looked dead and now its up and fine?!?! idk looking for some help! oh and the other day it was sitting on the dock and when he walked off he left his claw??? new to vampire crabs and loving them but Im just not sure what to do with this one

Hi, welcome to the forum

Sorry, I can't help here. You could try PM'ing GreenGo. Guessing panther crabs aren't the same but closest expert I could find.

Panther Crab (Parathelphusa pantherina)
