Coral banded shrimp claw fell off!

I just looked in my tank and my coral banded shrimp molted but one of his claws is totally off now! Any ideas on why this might have happened??

usually when something like this happens it is usually fixed the next time he molts. I wouldnt be too worried however if it happens again I would check your Iodine levels in your tank.. Do you change you water frequently? Iodine is usually not needed unless you slack off on changing your water.. Me I do 5gals per week and its plenty enough water changes for my 55gal..

I agree, it could be diet but most often it's a high Iodine level.
If you wake up breathing CONGRATULATIONS!!! You get another chance to do it right.

This has happened to me too! It grew back the next time it molted.
