Do amphipods molt?

Recommended Posts

Do amphipods molt like typical shrimp/crabs where they shed their exoskeleton and it looks like a dried up husk version of themselves afterwards? I feel like the answer is yes, but I'm not really sure.

When I was gluing one of my frags, this giant amphipod squirmed out from under my thumb and swam away, so big I felt it squirming which was kinda gross tbh. But anyways, I saw my blenny chomping on something but then spit it out and it looked just like that amphipod, but the skeleton looked pretty clear, so I figured it could have been its molt. Probably belonged to that guy lmao.

 

Thank you!
