My red swamp and cobalt blue lobsters bred with each other, and I managed to save one baby.
About a month ago, it molted only partially and now is just a mess. The weird part is that when I look to see if he is alive, he is despite looking dead. Is there any way I can help? Will this be sorted out with the next molt or not?image.jpg

I don’t think he’s to familiar with crayfish, but I’m not either, but I’d recommend some aquarium salt.
Not to sure about crayfish but if it’s alive and not moving much and not able to eat then I imagine nothing can be done.

Ok, I think he’s only alive cause of filter feeding, but I’m not optimistic. I guess I’ll just wait till he dies or the problem fixes itself. I’ll keep you posted.

Figured I’d post an update. The cray wound up dying 😥, maybe I’ll try intentionally breeding the two again some day.
