Oh dear what to do now?

K so woke up took a look at the tank and the shrimp molted last night. K normal right...... Problem is the molt is in the bubble coral. Ahhhhhh!!! Do I leave it I don't want to pull it out I'm afraid of ripping the flesh. What do all the experts think?

I am unsure. My bubble ate a molt before from my cleaner shrimp and he is fine. This happened about a month ago. He also ate a silverslide head it dropped on him and he closed up and I didnt want to bother or burst his bubble. I hope someone else with more experience chimes in this was just from my own experience.

So far as it opens up it seems to be spitting it out. Phew......
