Finally caught my mantis!!! I was looking in my tank today and did a double take at one of my LR
's and BLAM theres the mantis staring right at me. I went for my water tub and immediately pulled the whole piece of rock out. Didnt know how I was gonna get it out, I didnt want to do anything that would hurt thr LR
or its other inhabitants. So I grabbed a feeding stick and a pair of tweezers and started poking in all the holes using a flashlight I located the little pest and managed to corner him with the stick while I plucked him out with the tweezers
Its only about 2-1/2" but it sure beat up the feeding stick 8O So I dumped in my 75gal with my volitan that hasnt eaten in over a week hoping this may trigger his eating again
If he survives I may take him to the LFS
for trade or get him a nano and keep him. Can anyone identify it?
