Molting crabs and lobster

Ok I have 4 hermits (1 which I thought got eaten) and a purple lobster. Is it normal for them to molt at the same time? I got up this morning and thought sombody had gone into a feeding frenzy and eaten the lobster and 1 of my hemits. But when I counted everyone was in the place. Also it's a good sign when they are molting right?

Agree, if they are molting every few weeks, its a very good thing.
I have seen those Purple Lobsters at my LFS, very pretty. I am just afraid one would snatch my smaller fish.
