    Question Weird Clear Film Around Molting RCC...


    0 Not allowed!
    This is my second crab that has began to molt, my first one didn't make it :(

    Now this one began a couple days ago, I am noticing this clear film around his molting body, is this normal?

    I know he's still in there, but I'm worried, don't want to loose this little guy too.

    Most likely died but take it out and it will smell very bad if it died.

    That's the last thing I wanted to hear. I just checked him and he's floating a bit in the tank.

    How sure are you that he's deceased from the smell alone? Couldn't it also be from his shell softening in order to allow him to molt?

    I just want to make sure that he's actually dead and there is a slight chance that he may be still alive.

    I got him and my other one from Petsmart and it seems like mine are not surviving except one, who hasn't molted yet.

    For those on this community that have RCCs where do you get your RCCs from?

    Well it's official my RCC is dead and I have to find out the film I was mentioning in this post is actually a parasitic bacteria.

    I'm sorry for your loss

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

    Thanks, somehow it has happened twice. First with Sebastian and now Clawdios. What puzzles me is that Claw is the only one doing fine.

    Maybe it's the place I've purchased them from, so now I am heading to LFSs.
