Peppermint Shrimp Glued Feet Together

I glued a frag on a piece of LR and one of my peppermint shrimp got into it before it dried and glued his claws together.

Should I worry? Try to help him get them apart? Will it just wear off and be okay?

Awwwww... Not that I'm the defender of shrimps or anything, but I feel bad for him. not sure how on earth you'd be able to help him without breaking his claw off, but still feel bad for him.

Maybe wait until he molts? How's he doing? Can he still eat?

I looked later that evening and he had gotten his claws apart, he seems to be eating fine now!

He most likely will molt now due to the stress. So i wouldn't worry too much he will just molt it away!
