Red fire shrimp help!

I was watching my tank when I noticed my shrimp shooting up in the water like it was feeding time an my wrasse hot its tail. Then i noticed that the shrimp is missing some legs an it's front claws? I know it molted yesterday and I believe it was a bad molt the my wrasse being the opportunist decided to try a easy snack. I now have the shrimp separated an sitting in a plastic breeders box in the main tank.
It's still alive but doing a little hopping act to get around, as it's missing all but one leg on one side and both main claws (i think the wrasse is responsible for that) I know they can regrow legs an such but I'm afraid this guy can't even eat, I've tried feeding him but he just "plays dead" I though he was till he started jumping. Anyway, is there any chance it will be alrightClick image for larger version
