I’ve seen quite a few molts from this guy in my old tank. Found him by chance when I was transferring fish over so I decided to throw it in the new tank. Can’t tell if it’s a super tiny zebra mantis or just a pretty large mysis shrimp.

Ah I hadn’t though of that! The molt kind of looks like a tiny mantis shrimp when I see it but I’m not exactly an expert of copepod/shrimp anatomy. I only suspected mantis shrimp because of how long it has avoided being eaten
