Coral banded shrimp?

I came home for lunch and found my shrimp just laying in the bottom of the tank. After work I went to pull him out and there wasn't much substance to him and figured I had lost another critter. A few minutes later when I was looking behind the LR to see how my scallop was doing, there was the shrimp. I didn't know they shed their shell. How often to they do this?

OK, I've learned a new word today. I've seen it a few times, but didn't know what it is\was.

I have a coral banded and it sheds about once a month. He just left a carcass the other day all in one peice. I still look for him right away to make sure it is merely a shell and not really him.
