Hi there, I know shrimp can regrow their exoskeletons, but can they also regrow legs? I accidently injured the front leg of my shrimp while syphoning and I feel bad that it hobbles now. Thanks for any advice!

Yes. They regenerate limbs when they molt. How badly is it injured?

Thanks for the fast reply Smiley It's missing half a leg but there's no bodily harm.

He should be good as new by the next molt. Wink
