Dr. Roy, thanks for posting this information.

When is it ever "OK" to remove a molt? Will it contribute to a decrease in water quality if the molt remains in the tank for an extended period of time (i.e. buried by the mantis somehwere). You mentioned that they eat the soft parts of the molt for extra nutrients, if the molt is removed to avoid degradation of water quality will the mantis be less likely to survive the molt?
