    outsmarted by my little mantis friend

    well, i kept the last mantis shrimp because he lived in a rock and had a little cave with a trap door that he closed up every day --found him very interesting and enjoyed hi little habits.
    i kept him in my sump but reciently decided to move him because i wanted to keep hermits etc in the sump to help clean-up but mr mantis eats them all.
    so i put the mantis and his cave in a biocube. well, he moved into the back of the biocube, of course. he doesnt need me gawking in all the time. now i never see him LOL. and have a nano dedicated to looking at a rock.
    guess its time to get more corals.:b6:
