Hermit Crab Care

Molting - Aaron - 5/28/2004
I picked up my little crab boathouse and my crab was molting. I threw away his exoskeleton thinking it was useless. what should I do? will it die? I also have never given them salt water either? they are still active come out in their tank though. The molting crab lost a leg in a panic. will there be any long term trauma or anything?
