thanks Dr. Roy - Good news I hope.

Mine has been taking selcon soaked krill for the last few days - It has also closed up the doors on two of it's caves. I notice too that today it has killed a smaller turbo snail.

It seems a bit more aggressive as well, it like to come from it's burrow and "flex" when I come near the tank to check the sump located below the display.

I am trying to convince myself that these are all signs of preparation for molting.

Dr. Roy - In your experience, how quickly does shell disease spread in an affected animal? Does a single "sore" (for lack of better words) continue to expand larger and take over or do the "sores" tend to migrate and spread?

Thanks - Keep us posted on the molt process of O.s in the lab
