2 weeks is fine. Most people tend to do water changes every 2 weeks or so anyway. as long as the fish are fed that should be fine.

mantis shrimp.. some people love them some people hate them..

personally i hate them.. i have one in my 75gal.. his been in there for 18 months.. cant find him.. hasnt taken down any fish so i've left him alone...

its up to you whether you want it out or leave it in..

If you know what rock its living in take that rock out and some people say give it a FW dip and it should come out. Some take a turkey baster with seltzer water and shoot that into the hole. Some just take a scure and jam it into the hole. There are many ways. I have one in my 20 gal fuge and he is cool..
