I received my shipment of rock from hirocks today so I decided now would be a good time to rid myself of PIMA. What I did was buy a bottle of seltzer and with my baster (note to self:buy new turkey baster) squirt selzter into each hole. Sure enough, he ran right out. I should add that I knew what two rocks he had made is dwelling in so I didn't squirt each rock I had. I ahve only seen this one, so I am ignorantly and blissfully going to believe I have rid myself of the mantis menace. I have him in my 10g qt
tank right now. When I was going to buy RO
water today, I mentioned about the mantis, he said he would trade me the shrimp for something I wanted at the store (i.e. snails) Is that a good deal? Should I ask for a damsel or something? Or keep it to snails?
I managed to snap a few pics of PIMA, I admit, if I was into his type I would keep him. He is a curious fellow and loved to pose for my camera.
I'm so proud!!!!
