So recently I set up a new and bigger tank for my peacock mantis shrimp. It has more floor space, hides, and sand to burrow into. The tank has been running with safely for a month now and everything checks out on the water levels, salt, ammonia etc etc. I was going to transfer the critter over last night when noticed it wasn't eating when I offered it food and would not come out of its hide no mater what. That is when I learned it had just molted! It is looking better than ever and has regrown some of the legs that it had lost before I got it. My question to you all is, when is it safe to me to move it to the new tank? How long does it take for its new exoskeleton to harden? I don't want to hurt in attempting to net it up.
