Help! Random crawfish injury, what do i do?!?

Layen

I have a female white crawfish, and shes been doing really good, but she just molted, and one of her pinchers is cracked and broken (she just drags it) and another leg is completely black and broken. i havent seen her tank mate fight with her, they usually stay away from eachother. (Her tank mate is a male red crawfish)

Croeso welcome to fishlore Layen
In cases like this theres nothing you can do, if they trouble her she is capable of removing the claw herself, if you find she's having problems doing that then you can intervene and remove them yourself
This is now where spot feeding until the next molt where she will regain lost limbs, she still as small feeder claws but make sure you break the food up small enough for her to manage
She will eat the molt which will help with minerals
Check your parameters te see if thats what caused the faild molt
Until the next moult just keep the water fresh as no doubt you do
She will be vulnerable for a few days so wath the partner
