So, my fire that I just got molted last night as I noticed two "fire shrimps" in the tank when I knew I only had one. ;-)

My question is, do you remove the old "shell" from the tank or just leave it be?

Thanks in advance....

You can take it out if you want too. They usually just disappear into the rockwork after a while.

Ok, thanks. I wasn't sure if it decaying would add to the load on the tank unnecessarily.
