Peppermint Shrimp
I have added 3 of these guys to my tank and was wondering if they molt and will they get along with emperal crabs? I`m also curious what they eat and if I should provide a suppliment for them?

THey will eat most things, they are cleaners, so algae and astapsia will be eaten too! ive had 3 for a long time, and they are doing great in my 60!

They are pretty fast so the Emerald should not bother them. Great animals for any tank IMO.
They will clean up what the fish miss, but do appreciate a sinking pellet now and then.
Yes they do molt like any other shrimp, mine molt about once a month.
