    Are you sure its a crab or just a molted shell? If you touch it, does it react?

    Also, is this a crab only habitat? They require brackish water and places to climb out of the water.

    Me thinks this should be in the crab forum and not the How To. Now moved.

    Good advice, Aeonflame.

    I'd say it just molted unless you bought a single mutated crab. :) typically the crab will eat the shell it molted to gather calcium to rebuild its exoskeleton.
