white bulge on Emerald crab??????

Recommended Posts



I have an emerald crab with a strange white bulge coming out of its side.  I have had this crab for at least 6 months and it has never molted. I have trouble with inverts molting.  My guess is he is molting in a very bad way.  He is still eating and moving around like nothing is wrong.  (he is not eating the zoas just cleaning out the algae between the polyps.He is very good at this)  If anyone has an idea about what is going on, please let me know.  The picture isn't great but hopefully you can see the problem.
