Are bumble bee snails this hardcore or did this emerald crab likely die from something else first?

Are you sure it's not just a molted shell?
No, I didn’t know they molt like shrimp. I’ll have to count if I still have 4 or only 3 in there alive. If I saw 4 Alive one day and didn’t learn that they molt, that would have been interesting

Yes, all crustaceans molt... a fact I also was reminded of recently.. I found a molt and thought my Emerald crab died. Several days later I saw my crab.. whew... glad he’s still alive.
 

Do you reef more, less or the same on the weekends?
