Well our tank has been snapping and popping relentlessly, and we were peeking around trying to see what was making all the extra ruckus besides out pistol shrimp.
And what do you know, a colorful 2" mantis shrimp (I think it looks like a peacock mantis ) peeked out at us from a little piece of LR
(one that I neglected to FW
I reached in and grabbed the LR
hoping I would not get snapped on my hand, and as I got the rock almost out, the shrimp panicked and fled the rock !
Fortunately the shrimp scooted to the corner of the tank!! Jeanene tossed me a 5" net and I was able to trap it in the net and swooooop it over to the 10g "misbehaving crab" tank.
So now he's peeking at me from under a rock with those mega-beady eyes and planning to blow the glass out of the wimpy 10G.
I spose now I have to get a little acrylic tank for this dangerous dude.... 10G glass is pretty wimpy, man.
