I feel like a
for asking, but it still bothers me, especially after going to my LFS
and not being able to describe what happened to my emerald crab.
After 2 months or so (in a FOWLR
) it started developing some white scum/ cottony/moldy stuff on its shell, on the top of it. At first I thought it was molding, or something got stuck, it was still active and such, and well, after a month it died.
I went to my LFS
and he told me my aquarium probably needed calcium. True, it is the one I have not changed water for 4 months. But hey! What can consume calcium so quickly that the poor thing died after 2/3 months?
My feeling is that he would not agree (since I bought everything from him) that perhaps some sort of fungi came with the whole thing and got the best of it.
But perhaps, i am wrong, please, tell me what it could be.
Sorry, i feel like a schmuck, did not take any pic.
