Whichever you want to do. Some people remove it, others leave it for the CUC. depends on how much you dislike seeing it there.

Lol. Yeah, the fist few I took out with a net-not touching that!- the last few I've left in there and they're gone within a day or 2.

LMFAO!!! Sounds like my wife.... loves to go fishing, but won't bait the hook or touch the fish......

When my cleaner molts, I always pull the shell. Having a nano, I try to keep any contamination to a minimum.

Soooo true.. they don't like fishing, they like sitting there stairing at the water. The fishing part is just something they deal with so we join them lmao.. but I leave all my molts in my tank.. most of them by the time I notice are being chopped up in one of my circulation pumps haha
