What to do with Cleaner Shrimp Molt

My cleaner shrimp molted and it's actually pretty disgusting to look at lmao.

Should I clean it up? or will it decompose? I'm not sure what exactly to do with it lol

Do you have coral? If you do feed it the molt. LPS love the molts.

It will decompose. If you don't like looking at it, it won't hurt anything to take it out.

I pull it so it doesn't add anything to the water column.

On the subject of molting....mine stopped molting back in October. He's still happy and eating, though. Should I be concerned?

Should be okay they slow down on there molts as they age, guess they just stop growing as long as it's eating i'd say he's fine
