That's where I am lucky... Been working tons of OT, so I have a $200 budget each month for aquarium stuff and my cat (and he's cheap)

Loo. Don't feel bad. My husband thought his prized cleaner shrimp died when it molted. It took 15 minutes to explain that they moly and to find the shrimp still alive for proof. Lol

I didn't know the EC's would molt either. I would have thought mine was dead also had I not seen this. This is one of my fav threads on the board. lol couldn't guess why since your tank & mine are so much alike. I'm still loving the monti, I choose a flower pot as my "center piece" but yours looks so much better. IMO

All invertebrates have to molt, or they couldn't grow. It's tough having to carry your bones on the outside...notable exception is the hermit crab, who just changes out houses.

KC - It's funny, I'm always watching out for your updates too! Gives me inspiration. I am still shamelessly stealing your cascading mushroom idea. I already have plans to pic up a few this weekend to start placing them.

Greg - I swear, if common sense were common, imagine what we could accomplish! I never even thought about it... When my cleaner molts, its pretty obvious to me that its a shell, but seeing the EC molt, it looked like one of the larger hermits pulled him in half - I figured I'd missed an epic battle of the titans the day before.

I suppose if they are molting, its also a good sign for the tank!
