I'm fairly certain you don't have to acclimate macros- wait for someone else to be positive.

Most people leave molts in. There are various thing that consume it (pods, etc.) so they usually disappear quickly. I've noticed crab molts take alittle more time than shrimp molts to disappear I assume because they are thicker/tougher.

It's actually a good idea to acclimate it at least somewhat. Truely most times you can just add it with no issue but a small % of the time, the algae will not adapt and crash. Treat it as you would a fish and you will have much less issues with die off.

Cheers
