shrimps and starfish

Last night my 2 shrimps molted. Should I removed their skins from the tank? Also, my chocolate chip starfish likes to curl up around my fingers when I put them in the tank. Is that bad? for me to touch it? or for it to do that? I actually quite enjoy it! Thanks for your replies.

I wouldn't, many of the critters will eat the exoskeleton (maybe even the shrim, I know mantis shrimps eat theirs) and gain something from it.

Feed it.ounds like it's trying to eat you.

As a general rule, it is not a good idea to touch our wet pets, their are things on your hands that could harm them and our touch can cause them stress.
