    Buddy i never removed any skins of anything in my tank ever, so if it did have an effect it surely didnt show in my system in a negative way.

    My shrimp sheds on a regular basis..he's probably done it about 8 times now...in about 3months I think...I know he's movements so well by now,that I tell Hubby..."Cheeky is going to shed tonight, can you please just remove he's skin before you go to work tomorrow morning...":lol:..True as Bob...next day we have a "parcel" :005::005:...I just remove it as I don't know if it will affect my water if I leave it in...err on the side of caution...:blush:
