Cleaner Shrimp Molt

My cleaner shrimp has molted for the first time. Do I remove his skeleton from the aquarium or will he/hermit crabs end up eating it for nutrition?

Doesn't matter. I remove mine, but I know others leave theirs in to let the other critters "snack" on it.

I leave mine in, but it really doesn't matter.
