That is correct...they molt the exoskeleton on a regular basis and it can be confused with a dead body sometimes...be sure and leave at least one in the tank so the shrimp can eat it for the minerals it provides them for a strong exoskeleton....remember once they molt the body is soft for a period of time and this is when they can be killed the easiest.....
