Does this mean I have a stable tank?

I got worried when I saw my cleaner shrimp stuck to my intake for my canister filter. Then I looked on the rocks and saw my cleaner shrimp apparently he's molted now just about two weeks after my emerald crab molted. Does that mean I have stable parameters and my tank is doing well?

Means your tank has good parameters for them. How old is the tank?

I have not taken it very slow. I rushed, but still seem to be doing ok. I have reached the max for this tank. I am getting a 75 gallon this weekend. This one is a 29. My current and final stocking is:

Pair of percula clowns
lawnmower blenny
pygmy angel
hector's goby
cleaner shrimp
2 emerald crabs
a few misc. snails and a couple crabs

for corals:
Long tentacle plate
short tentacle plate
Acan
duncan
brain
kenya
GSP
frogspawn
hammer
torch
xenia
mushrooms
candy cane

One thing that made things go faster is that I was cycled in 2 weeks. I used live rock, start smart and dead silversides.

Here is an FTS:

Nice looking long tentacle. The GSP look cool too. I wish mine had taken off.

That was my first coral and took off like a weed. Everything I have put in the tank has done great. The only coral that hasn't faired well is the flowerpot frag. I think I squished it when I puttied it to the rock. I think I killed that one.
