weird marbled crayfish molt

So yesterday i noticed a smaller marbled crayfish halfway out of its shell out in the open..i left it alone for about an hour before deciding to carefully move it into a container with tank water so that my paradise fish doesnt eat it.
its been about 20 hours now, and it doesnt seem to have come any further out of its shell. the new body had become a little darker.. and the antenna seem to be moving every so often..
should it have already came out all of the way?
i've never had this specific type of crayfish so i'm not sure.

Sometimes they can die during the molt.
