Yeah haven't seen her in a few days. There's pebbles shoved everywhere. Do you know how long it would take? I'm really curious because I knew they had to molt but all my regular "shrimp" just molt in the open. I know she's not technically a shrimp so I didn't know how. I'll have to read up on it I guess. I just hope the mantis and eel get along. The eel won't bother her because she can't fit in it's mouth. Worried that the mantis might bother the eel but I guess we shall see!!

AbsoluteFaye's Mantis Tank Build!

They are much more reclusive during a molt than shrimp, I believe it usually takes around a week before they feel comfortable and come back out. The thread I linked to like way back on the first page from NR has a ton of mantis info, and TIki is what I would call a mantis expert and is always willing to answer people's questions.
Edit: and from everything I've read molting is pretty much the hardest thing they ever do. And it's fairly common for them to re appear with under developed appendages

Not sure on the mantis, but when my spiders Molt they are defenseless for a period of time, so they hide about a week after, perhaps the same principle applies?

The mantis is out and about and boy was she hungry! Went to feed her a clam and the eel stole it so I had to feed the eel first. And I guess she got hungry during the night because there is a perfect eel mouth shaped injury on my white damsel. Lol. Guess it was too big for her. Crazy animals.

That's good about her coming out, did you find any pieces of her molt?

No. Her "home" is literally inside a piece of large rock. There's not even much flow back there so I doubt I'll see it unless something drags it out.

She probably ate it then. Did she change colors at all?

Looks like her red stripes got much brighter. That's it I think. She's so fast it was hard I see.
