Red Claw Crab Missing Legs

lovethebeach329

My daughter has red claw crabs and one apparently doesn't like another one. He's missing all his legs but one, on one side. What are our options?

Get either a divider or get a new tank to separate the crabs prioritize separation cuz once you separate the crabs then give the crab some time and may molt no guarantee on survival but if the crabs are separates then hopefully after a molt or two he'll be ok

Welcome to fishlore this dosnt sound good she should have told you earlier, first thing you must separate them before its killed, the only chance and it's a slI'm one is to hand feed until she moults but it will take 4ish moults for them to regenerate, it may just die through shock

When they molt, their legs will grow back?

What is the smallest size tank one crab can be in? I don't have an extra tank on hand.
