At first I only saw one piece and really couldn't make it out but knew that it wasn't in the tank when I went to bed last night, but then I saw a couple more pieces laying on the bottom of the tank. I found and counted all four of my hermits and they looked alive and well...so what the H was going on!? Then I looked in my little six gallon tank and saw that there was also a piece of hermit in there...it finally made sense. Crabs shed!!! Whew, what a relief to figure that out
, duh. So now I have bigger crabs in the same shells (I ordered some more, just waiting on them) and now I can really see what they look like. Cute little bugs
Now...my question is, do I leave the discarded "skins" in the tank for them to get rid of or do I take them out?
