    Woke up this morning and found that my Fire Shrimp moulted.

    Do i remove the shell from the tank or do i leave it in? If i leave it in will it cause an ammonia spike?

    I have never removed a moult, there isn't much meat left on it, it will soon go, any goodies on it will soon be gobbled up by your cuc or bristleworms.

    Yip, leave it in there, something will eat it and it won't cause any harm to the system.
