yeah being that i own another mantis in a seperate tank i figured i'd be familiar with their behavior but alas wherever this guy is it is bewildering me on figuring out how to catch it
i figured it would have a cave in the sand, but judging by where the clicks are coming from i'm assuming it HAS to be in my life rock. the clicks are coming from the upper left side of the tank.
still can't find it though, been looking so hard for it! i used to have the X-TERMINATOR trap but the cheap thing broke, truly a $20 rip off and i am definitelty not buyin another lol
i've contructed the plastic bottle trap with the inverted opening. anyone know if baiting a trap with tiny live hermit crabs could work? it may take time but if i use any other type of food then my entire tank is trying to get into the trap lol
its just so frustrating because i've never seen it but i know it's in there, but it absolutely refuses to come out of it's cave! it'd be nice if i knew it was peaceful but i love my inhabitants and don't want this mantis shrimp to grow up and eat them haha
