    That thing's huge!! It's nice to know that mantis' taste sweeter than lobster. I've sort of wondered that.

    I don't think he'd be too happy in a tank!!!!
    :fish3:Piatchie:fish3:

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    Well if he wasn't happy in the tank, I'm sure he'd just take over your favourite chair & wait for the dog ...

    Gee's mine will probably be that size by the time I can get him out of my tank. All I would have to do then is stand on a chair and drive a gaff into him and hopefully he don't take it out and chase me with it!!!:devil2:
    Cheers,

    Hmmm. I'm not going to guess the volume of the Gigantus's tank requirements, but, I would recommend you forget the tempered Starfire and go straight to 2" thick bullet proof Lexan.

    And maybe a Hannibal Lector restraint system while it is transferred to a new home.
