View Full Version : ghost shrimp shed

Since my 10 gallon is done cycling, I put my platy fry in and added some ghost shrimp to help keep the bottom clean.

I was wondering about when they shed.... Does it affect the water quality? Should I pick them out as I see them (although i did notice one of the shrimp eating it)?

They will molt as they grow and there is no need to remove the shed exoskeleton and the shrimp will eat it for the calcium. It will not affect the water quality.
