yep soon you'll see little ghost shrimp exoskeletons floating around the tank, until they eat them or they get sucked up in the filter.

my tank is a very good looking jungle lol there are things that go on in there i dont even know about some times i dont see a pleco for like a week and then all of a sudden he comes out to see me. i had the shrimp for a few months and havent seen any exoskeletons yet but this is why i love my aquarium there is always something new
