    Real Weird

    i dont know if im just going crazy, but do shrimp shed their skin or did i get i piece of live rock that had a dead shrimp on it. i went out yesterday i when i got back for some reason the body and the antennas of what i though was my cleaner shrimp were just sitting on a rock. for a second i thought my angel fish got aggresive but then i looked in a cave and there was my cleaner shrimp doing his majic. WEIRD!!!!

    They molt to grow. Their 'bones' are on the outside so they molt when the shell is getting tight. As long as they only do it every once in a while no big (too often is a sign of stress).
