Simultaneous Molting?

Is it normal for everything in a tank to molt around the same time? Last week I was sure I had a dead blueleg but then I moved the shell and saw that it still had a resident and what I found was a molt. I then was doing some maintenance on the tank today and noticed some scarlet legs in the corner but none of the scarlet shells were anywhere near the legs. None of my bluelegs are big enough to take the shells and I found one scarlet but couldn't find the other shell...so I'm guessing it's a molt. While looking for the other scarlet I noticed my peppermint shrimp molted also. Seems like everyone's changing their clothes at the same time!

Doesn't seem too improbable. Kinda like womens' cycles syncing...
