    Say It Isn't So!

    :help: O.K., here's the scoop.....Every now and then I hear a "click". Not very loud but it happens on a regular basis. Not "click, click, click" just "CLICK" only once! Currently I have 1 turbo snail, and supposedly 6 Narsiussssssss snails. I seen 3 of them about a week ago. I bought a Blood Shrimp on Saturday, he went in the tank at about 5pm, was doing fine, and by 10:30pm he was dead. Nothing fancy, like being cut up or anything, just lying on his side dead! Then I heard it again, "click"! All fish and Corals are doing great. They only go after inverts, :crap: right?

    PLEASE, tell me this is not a mantis! :bawling:

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

    If it's a pistol shrimp, put a watchman goby in the tank and hopefully they're pair up. Then you'll see them lots.

    Listen closely, it might tap out it's menu requests in morse code
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    I have heard that the Mantis shrimp closing their claws can be audible outside tank but only big ones. Typicly it is pistol shrimp that are heard though. The fact there is no damage to the blood shrimp goes against a mantis shrimp. Good luck.... a pistol shrimp would be better. cheers

    I have a pistol and a watchman
    I can only see them when i look through the bottom of the tank.
    he is REALLY loud
    like you snap your fingers as hard and as loud as you can

    I also agree if it were that shrimp it would have torn the other shrimp tp bits
    my pistol stays on the bottom and leaves my corals alone
    Who says Dogs are the only creature that's happy to see you?
