They are hitchikers!!! I never want them but couldn't get them out of the rocks. So I am in trouble.

Yeah, they will probably kill most of your critters. Are you sure they are mantis? Can you get a pic?

Before I add in all the rocks in the first place, I saw a mantis in the rocks, then I took the rock out and flush it out with fresh water. well I only caught one. Since there are so many rocks, I bet there will be more in there that I haven't seen. But i can hear clicks all night long.

You sure they're not pistols? Is one front claw a lot larger than the other? If so, they're pistol shrimps.

Gosh, i hope you don't have multiple mantis shrimps - or any for that matter! If so, you need to do some research on traps and get busy. I'd think any rock or sand near the rock dwelling critter (fish, inverts) would be toast before long.
