Shrimp Molt Gone Bad

I have a cleaner shrimp in my nano. He's s cute little guy, lots of personality. I change water (20%) every week and he seems to molt about every two or three.

He molted yesterday and seems that his antenna got caught and are very stunted. When I got him, he had a stubby couple and after the first molt, he was again fine.

Is this common?

Somewhat common. Not that big of a deal as they will grow back. Much better than losing a feeding arm.

Mine have done that a time or 2. No big deal, the next molt should compensate.
