She's worrying me a bit recently. She always goes off food prior to a moult so that's been normal, but it's been a couple of weeks now and still now moult. I'm finding her more and more inactive, and often laying on her side. If something comes near she wakes up and moves, but the majority of the time is spent inactive on her side.

From what I've ready it can be one of three things.

1 - struggling with a moult (which can lead to point 3)
2 - preparing to berry up/saddle, coinciding with a moult
3 - illness/impending death

Keeping a close watch and hoping for the best. She's way overdue her next moult now. I need to find time to get the tank swap done ASAP I think, perhaps space is hampering the moult?

It could be space, or lack of hiding spaces, or lack of calcium. Can you give her a calcium boost?

I'm heading off to LFS now, will have a look for some.

I may have bought an FX4 for the 240, so I can move the 307 to the 90. Jesus this thing is daunting.

Oh I hope she is going to be ok. Strange how the trouble makers always get a special place in my heart...

I got some Dennerle mineral stuff, calcium, magnesium etc, for assorted crustaceans.

Im half tempted to just move her now, I'd rather fix plants than lose her, but dont know if sudden water change would add to her stress.
