    So I bought a banded coral shrimp. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with them. He nipped my anemone til he moved and now took over the cave my anemone slept in. And a day after I got him he molted wondering if this is normal

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Yes all perfectly normal. I personally do not keep them because they will go after LPS and anemones for the food given to those inverts. The bigger the tank the better, no one invert gets picked on too much.

    yea he hasn't messed with the anemone since he must bed so I'm hoping it was just a territorial thing. They are both happy now
