cleaner molting

I was just testing my water a few minutes ago, and after I was done, I took a look in the tank. I was looking for the cleaner shrimp because I haven't seen him in a day or so, and was worried because I just lost all my emerald crabs. I seen some of his antennae behind one of the rocks and thought that there were more than he was supposed to have. After getting a better angle I watched him crawl out of his molted skin . It was really cool and exciting to watch. I tried to get pictures, but the camera made them too blurry with the angle that I had it.

By the way, water was good Amm-0, trite-0, trate-0, Ca-440, KH-190 mg/L, pH-8.3, SG-1.024

Hah! I have some limestone rock very similar to that -- it keeps my Ca up (but it is so freaking difficult to get it to take to Coralline)
