Mantis Shrimp

I hear everybody dicussung getting Mantis Shrimp in their live rock and making sure to get rid of them. Why do you not want any Mantis Shrimp? Everybody talks bad about them but nobody says why they are bad. Can someone shed some light?

Yep, they are top-level predators. Very interesting creatures though, so a lot of people keep them in a nano by themselves.
