Crab Molting

Recommended Posts

I think this is the molting from my Sally Lightfoot Crab, but I just wanted to make sure. My shrimp already molted a couple of days ago.


Do I need to remove it?

My coral banded shrimp molted 3 times already and I always remove the molt but a couple of days ago my peppermint shrimp molted and before I was able to remove the molt, my hermit crabs were all over it and finally ate it within 1 hour.

You can just leave molts. They don't cause water quality issues (unless you are in some uber tiny vase or bowl) and usually the invert eats its own molt, or others do, for calcium.
