When I first arrived at this new home of mine, my carapace was mossy. see this photo below!
Can you see those green things on my carapace? those are the moss!
Mommy tried to get rid of it by using toothbrush but it stuck because I had that moss for long. So Mommy thought that water might be the best way to get rid of it.
In the petshop, I stayed in a tank with minimum water, that condition (damp and humid) made the moss assumed that I was a rock and a perfect place for them to grow. Fortunately Mommy still took me home, me and my moss.
I have been living in a tank full of water since I live here…and every time she picks me up, she rubs my carapace with a towel. The moss is easier to remove in wet condition. She does that all the time and now look at my almost-moss-free carapace 🙂
Hopely I can have a good shedding too so that my carapace can have a smooth look.
Have a nice weekend guys 🙂
