Is this molting?

Woke up to see this, and I’m unsure if some RCS have died or if this is moot (first time owner). Only thing I changed yesterday was I left a blanched slice of carrot in overnight and then I saw this just now...

The one’s I can see seem fine but slightly skittish, and I associate this as if they have molted.

yup they look like shrimp casts. Like perfect little ghosts of shrimp complete with legs and antennae! You can see the plate behind the head lifted up where the shrimp emerges. When was your last water change?

Thank you! They are pretty cool but also scary for the first time you see them! I changed the water 8 days ago :)

cool - just checking - sometimes even changing the water can trigger a molt
