Hey guys

So about 3 weeks my cleaner shrimp stopped eating then he molted and went back to normal

Now yesterday he stopped eating again so i assumed he was going to molt

Today i came home from work and i see bits and pieces of him around the tank, it definately looks like molt but not entirely sure because i cant see him anywhere whatsoever

Usually id be able to see a feeler or something

My question is how small of a gap could they hide in if he was hiding, assuming he didnt die

Only livestock i have is 2 clowns and 3 mollies, i have 2 hermit crabs, 2 nassarius snails and 2 trochus snails

My parameters are
Temp 25c 77f
Ph 8.2
Ammonia & nitrite 0
Nitrate 10
Phosphate 0.07
Sg 1.023
Alk 8.3
Cal 470


Tank is 85 gal
