    Just thought I would give a little update on my latest mantis shrimp hunting adventure.

    I now have 1 very unhappy mantis shrimp living in my 30.Pics will be forth coming,as soon as I can coax him out of his rock long enough to snap one.

    He looks to be around 1 1/2" long.

    Tomorrow evening i'm going to drop his rock in a bucket of super salinity water to run his little green hind end out for a picture.

    Whats y'alls vote?

    Banish him to pushing grass in the front yard?

    or

    Keep him in the 30?

    Rigo my friend.
    You ought to know better than that.:mrgreen:
    The little mantis is just sitting there in his little hole,nothing but his beady little eyes poking out.
    Ive been trying to coax him out with some food,but he just runs out,grabs the food,and runs back in.Its actually cool to see him do that.Ive been hand feeding him too.:mrgreen:He actually run across my hand earlier this morning.
    He might just tame down pretty good.
