    when they are first introduced into the tank they will molt. I would say mine molts about once every 4 to 5 months, I think???? But it is totally normal for them to molt once first introduced into the tank. Not to worry

    Default multi molting

    #ed_op#DIV#ed_cl#I have a cleaner that used to hide in a tank with a trigger and damsels, it would only come out at night. Then I moved it to a different tank and he molted twice in about 2 weeks. My guess it was feeling better cause it didnt have to hide in the other tank. Streaker...#ed_op#/DIV#ed_cl#
