sweet !!! great job Yote. Whatcha doin' with him !!
Dont know yet Ray.Right now he's chillin in a cut off gallon water jug.
Anybody that wants him,can have him.All they gotta do is pay shipping
why dont you give it to your fish store, im sure someone out there wants a mantis shrimp
that would be so awesome. they are so cool. i kinda wanna set up a tank for one sometime...theyre so awesome just to watch
ya know, in fact ill just convert alexs 180 into a mantis tank....jack would be fine in the 80 gallon, no prob
I'll probably do that.Just gotta find some place to put him tonight.
Got to much rock in the fuge,so he aint going in there.
HEHE Now your thinking
I'll get em in the mail in the morning:mrgreen:
seriously i think theyre so awesome. it wouldnt be so bad to have a mantis set up. can you have coral with them at all?
you should be able to
Yeah.That one never bothered my coral at all.Never even went after my fish.But wrecked havok on my Nass.snails.Mantis's will take out your CUC pretty quick,starting with the smaller snails and working their way up from there.
The great hunter has captured his prize!!!!
I am a little disappointed that you have not even mentioned the possibility of mounting it and putting it above the fire place. What kinda southern boy are you anyway???
i always thought they would hurt fish for some reason too....probably just assuming. that is a thought. maybe ill add him into the 36 when i get it set up. im pretty sure they do ok in a tank that size. all the videos i have seen them in dont seem to be huge. again i could be totally wrong
they can eat fish if they catch it
congrats yote!!! im happy for you catching the mantis. I struggled to take out my sohal, i cant even begin to imagine a mantis. Ill forever have my fingers crossed that I dont ever inadvertently obtain one.
alex please tell me how you got the sohal out
ill post a story/pics in my thread here in a minute
Congrats Yote. I say fry him up and eat him.:mrgreen:
Good job! The Great White Hunter strikes again!
You get any tips from Ted Nugent? lol
good job yote
No place to hang em if I mounted him.And not enough meat there to waste the grease on,so frying is out.
And I taught Uncle Ted every thing he knows:mrgreen:
He's sitting in a lil 2 gallon goldfish bowl right now though.
