    Blood Shrimp Molting

    My Blood Shrimp Molts once every week. Is this normal?

    Hi Jason,

    Molting occurs when Shrimp are growing, you must have a smaller Blood shrimp creating the more frequent molting patterns. Yes this is normal and healthy actually.

    In a month or so you'll see a slow down.
