I was able to catch one out in the open on the side of the tank that faces the wall. Had to squeeze in to try and get pictures. I swear my phone will focus in and it looks great then it continues to focus and it gets fuzzy.
So I checked the tank this morning, and noticed a crab sitting in the moss. So when I turn on the light no movement. As I watch it doesn't move at all. I start to think it died. So I wait some more and nothing. I thought it looks kinda clear ish maybe its a molt. So I moved it to the substrate to get some close up pictures with the micro camera. Do you think its a molt?
Definitely a molt. Crabs don't lose their coloration like shrimp when they die. I bred Mangrove and Vamp crabs and dead ones would retain coloration for weeks until they fully rotted and left their shell behind.
Molts are semi-translucent and crunch when you squeeze them. You can see through the legs, very distinguishable for molts.
