OMG! I was just now sitting on my floor watching my tank... My 2 peppermint shrimp were in one corner. The female was acting wierd and all of the sudden, she molted right in front of me! It was incredible! I, personally, have never seen a molting.. The male pinned her down as soon as she pulled out of her shell and acausted her! It was incredible!

Very cool. I have never seen it either. I always just find the molt after the fact.

In my years of reefing, I've only seen this once....and while I was watching the lights turned off, lol. It's pretty neat however.
