my vampire shrimps first molting :D

So far its every shrimp snacking on the shedding, but I suspect he will nibble on it tonight. It was fine, and then one min. There was a big white spot, next to his driftwood cave. I haven't seen him yet, but id rather not risk spooking him and him getting upset or somthing. He's getting begger!

In the last too pictures, you can just barely see him. He's moved alota plants into the front entrances, at nighttime I've seen him go out, but other than moving the plants, I never see him, but he's still pretty awesome and probobly my favorite guy in this tank

Yeah they are really soft and vulnerable after molting so you won't see him out for a couple days.

I know I freaked out the first time my Amanos molted. I had no idea what was going on. At first I thought it had been eaten from the inside out. Doh! Definitely a learning experience.

I've been mulling over a shrimp purchase, and now I'm convinced. Really interesting, but I might jut freak out the first molt thinking it is actually the shrimp and not his shell.
