No, say something like "I saw a video on YouTube of a peacock mantis shrimp breaking the glass of its tank, but people are debating against it, saying that it cannot generate enough force to break the tempered glass. What do you guys think?"


........or something like that. Idk I need to grow up lolololololol

It does take a few shots to break glass he not lying it may put a hole in it but doesn't mean it will shatter

OMG..... this morning, I remembered to go on youtube to see the videos. Holy moley, I would NOT want one of those monsters in my tank. It was really disturbing. I'm sure it's good for the mantis, but it wasn't good for me..... or their prey.

I'll say it once more...I am a mechanical engineer with a minor in chemistry...so I do know something about physics.
200 pounds of concentrated force down to a pin point will crack most types of glass that are thin enough. No, they can't crack a piece of 1" structural glass, but your tanks aren't made out of this unless it is a very big one. It's all about concentrated force. Most people keep shrimp in a 20-30 gallon tank that has at best a 1/4" bottom. They can crack those, I have seen it with my own eyes.

'nuff said on my end.
