Need help.

I am so confused by my hermits.
They aren't active at all,, but they aren't molting. I'm scared that they aren't doing well.

They aren't active during the day or night. They are alive and become active when I bath them

How long have you had these crabs? What are your tank conditions? What do you feed them or give them to drink? There are a lot of reasons your crabs are inactive, which could range from not enough humidity for them to breathe to being too cold to not getting enough of the right types of food or having enough to do in their tank. We'd need more information before offering you any advice.
