I have 2 small Es and (I hope still alive) a small PP that's subterranean/molting. I lost my other PP for unknown reasons, but it looks like someone ate him, I found exo and tail near shell and not much else. He was very close to surface though which may have prompted attack.
I have a 28 gallon hex tank with a second level and 9" substrate. My conditions seem pretty spot on as far as I can tell.
Here's my question (and I hope I'm in the right place) I'm adopting a new crab this week of a yet unknown species and size. It's coming from pretty poor conditions (very shallow substrate and low humidity as far as I can tell from picture). Would you ISO the new crab? How long? Until it successfully molts? Keep in mind I possibly have mean Es.
I have a 5.5 gallon that I can set up quickly if ISO seems the best choice.

Can you describe what you mean when you say you are finding the tails? Also could you copy & fill out the Emergency Template and post it in the Emergency Section so we can figure out why your Es may be acting out?
Usually I don't recommend ISO for new crabs as it just adds stress & another move but we may need to see what the issue could be in the main tank before I can advise on that.

kitty: Not much activity in my tank. One morning I got up and it looked like a tornado went through it. Water bowls tumbled, food dishes upside down. Fixed it all up and have been waiting eversince. ! Nothing. DARN !!
