Got my mantis!!! He's about 3 inches. Dark in color but really nice red coloration. He's shy because he literally just went into the tank an hour ago. It's hard to see him but I took a video of him eating a thawed clam I gave him. I think if I can confirm he's a boy I'll probably name him Khal Drogo or Khan. Other suggestions? Not like he's gonna come when I ca him. But he ate right away so I think we are bonding.

So now that I got a good look at the underside of Khal Drogo, he is a she. So shall it be Daenerys or Khaleesi?? Heres a video of her clicking! Don't mind the half dead hammer. Nursing it back after a mishap in another tank.

This whole time I thought you guys were like naming really exotic fish, guess it was names for the mantis, lol.
