Red Tai Crab Molting???????

by TIMnMISS4687

My Red Tai Crab just got done molting for the second time in about 4 weeks. I was thinking they only molted once or twice a year. He is a very healthy looking and his moltings look good too. Does anyone know how often and/or what triggers molting? Mr. Crabs appreciates everyone's advice.
