    Default molting fiddler?

    0 Not allowed!
    I have 2 fiddlers in my 30g with a sloping land area and brackish water. Well one of my crabs was just sitting there in the tank and all night she sat in the same place. This morning I got up and looked at her and she seems pale and her eyes stalks are pulled in and shes still not moving. Is she molting or dead? Help please!

    Try moving her. You might be looking at just the old shell and the actual crab is hidden elsewhere in the tank.

    It just might have been her time or bad genes or something. Dont beat yourself up about it. I had a red claw crab that was absolutely fine one day and walking up a driftwood peice fell off it and died.
