re: molting -
You can just put a towel over her end of the tank. You might also cut an opening in the side of a dark colored plastic bowl, they type oleo comes in and place it over her with a wet sponge next to her. I don't know why she lost her big pincer. Did you check it to make sure it wasnt' exo? Sounds awful but was there meat in it? It takes a lot of energy to molt, so be patient, Just do the snif test a couple times a day. You don't have to pick her up for this , just snif the tank for a strong fishy odor. as long as it isn't present she is doing fine. Sory my backspace isn't working today so some mistakes.
