Frogspawn kills Branded Coral Shrimp

Hello all who are experienced. I'm posting this thread to get feedback on my current situation.

I have a Branded Coral Shrimp, was alive and well, quite happily entertaining in my 14 gallon Biocube. It got a little close and had some fun with a frogspawn.

As of now the shrimp is not dead.

The day I came home he had green and purple frogspawn attached to his back and wouldn't move. I went in to clean his back and get frogspawn off and he went crazy, swimming upside down in a circle. I finally got him clean and acclimated him into my 8 gallon tank.

He has been alive and breathing but not moving or eating. He has arms and legs all crossed and isn't happy and don't move.

Still in shock, the sting from the frogspawn hit hard and to long?

Do you think he will make it out of the mess he is in?

Is this a multiple day molting... I never seen this as I have only had him for a couple weeks.

Any recommendations please.

Thanks,

Casey

Really the only thing you can do is wait and watch him to see if he recovers.
