    Where to get a mantis shrimp?

    I have a 5.5g tank and I'm gonna start a nano. I was thinking of doing a mantis shripm tank. Who sells these bastards?
    2.5g pico: 2lbs live rock, that's it for now.

    not a whole lot of people do... just ask ur LFS to keep an eye out on them in their LR shipments, you'd probably get one for free...

    I've been looking for one for about 6 months now. Unless they throw these things away, I've not seen one at any stores. I have only seen one at a guys house because it came with the rocks that he bought.

    I had one in the rock that I bought. First time I seen him he frightened the crap out of me. He was living in my aquarium for about 6-8 months before I found him. And I was wondering where all my crabs were going?????LOL He made a meal out of about 10 -15 crabs I guess. Oh well.
    Cheers,

    BigAl's Montreal recently brought in 3 Peacock Mantis Shrimp. They were quite beautiful and scary looking at the same time.

    ooooooooooo MINE.

    Any idea of price. I really don't know. This is a side thing for my room. I mean people get rid of them, nobody likes them. I have no idea what they go for.
