molts can look like the actual shrimp
this molt of my lobster freaked me out this morn wasn't expecting it up on the rocks lol
it looks just like the live lobster , most inverts place there molts in places to fool predators and lure them away from there hiding place


This guy could even fool even the most experienced lol

Be on the lookout as it is pretty cool.
No chance of ever raising or see any babies though.
I had a pair of coral banded shrimp that would breed all of the time. Pity I didn't have a quarantine to put them in so I could raise the babies. I know that they did actually have babies because I would see my blenny go into the shrimp cave then come out with a tiny arm or leg sticking out of his mouth.

I got a little bottle on my vacation and put it in my tank as sort of a memory and a piece of decor. Is a plastic bottle with shells and sand and I filled it with tank water and sealed the top with the cork. It sank right away. It says Hilton head island if you can't read it.

Well I tested the salinity of my tank and WTF???? It's 1.029!

How?

I should probably calm down.

I haven't added any water over 1.025 how did it get this high????

How do I safely bring it back down without killing something?

I'm lucky I noticed before I did my water change... Should my WC water still be 1.025?

I'm sorry I get worked up and confuse myself..
