do you scoop out moltings?
so, my cleaner shrimp molted a few days ago, again. i have been scooping out the molts when i find them but i'm wondering, is this necessary?
Shrimp will eat the molt's and can derive calcium from them which is good for development of their exoskeleton (new shell).
interesting! i also have hermit crabs that are probably eating them. if i see one and don't get it out right away, it seems to disappear.
Your CUC will clean it up.
looking in there a little while ago. one of the hermits was holding up a little sign that said "bbq sauce please!"
