Coral banded shrimp molt

I just added a coral banded shrimp to one of my tanks yesterday and in less than 24 hours it molted. Normally I wouldn't be concerned because I know it's something that happens but the timing has me worried. Is it just coincidence or should I be concerned? If it's the latter what should I look out for (water parameters, etc)?

Thanks!

Probably just coincidence.

Yeah, just a coincidence. My CBS molts every month or so. My halloween hermit molted last night.

After another day and still a happy shrimp I'm much less worried. I totally agree with you two, just a coincidence.

Most of my shrimp have molted right after getting them home, i think it has to do with the temp & ph change even after acclimation. No worries for sure!

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
It could also be the iodine level in your water. Have you been adding any besides what's in your salt mix?
