Yay molts are definitely a good sign they must be growing

I hope so. I think I caught one of the ones that molted out. I was able to snap some not so good pics. He/She is bigger than anything I received.

The one in the picture just sat as I took pictures. Normally they had been moving pretty quickly into the moss once the light came on and I tried to take pictures.

Are crabs in general safe with plants?

There really isn't an in general. There are too many varieties to make an umbrella statement.

I don't know about these -- they seem it -- but the Thai Micro Crabs are.

I really haven't seem them munching on any plants. They could be eating some of the moss tho. I haven't really seem them eat much of anything. I suppose they mostly come out at night. This morning I was able to catch 3 sitting on the moss in different areas. They didn't scuttle away when I turned the lights on so maybe they are getting used to it. I would have got some pictures but I noticed a blue Malawa in my other tank and well I got distracted with taking bad pictures of them.

I wonder how much you buy these for? Because back in my country we eat these by the thousand. And it cost less than $2 to burst your stomach.

They are less than a inch in size. I doubt anyone would eat them.
