    My Mantis Shrimp!

    Well I FINALLY have a Mantis!! I set him up in his own aquarium and he's been hiding under the rock in his burrow since I introduced him on Saturday so I haven't gotten any good pics of him. I will post MORE pics and videos of him "feeding" when I get to see it... Here is what I took this weekend...

    sweeet !!!
    how big is it ?
    you should feed it heavily so you can beat that record size one we saw last week on the news. he he he.

    try to give it a cute name like destroyer or terminator

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Thanks reefmania! Ill post pics of him once he gets out a bit more...He is a smasher so he shouldn't be as reclusive as a spearer but we'll see...so far he's been reclusive, but then again he still might be adapting to his new tank and surroundings..

    Ill try and get videos of him feeding ... Ill keep you guys posted
