Mantis shrimp

There is a tiny shrimp(I think it's a shrimp)in my tank, scurrying around, looks like he just hatched or something. If it's a mantis shrimp I guess it'll die during the cycle right? I only have my 11lbs of lr my deadrock is supposed to be in today.. the lr I got from the lfs..

Mantis shrimp are very hardy, if it is a mantis I'm sure it will survive the cycle.

There is a picture of the one I captured in my tank in this old thread. It is not the clearest pic as it is in the trap/bottle, but you might be able to get an idea.

I dont think mine is a Matis shrimp, I could be wrong. Mine was all red, maybe a pistol shrimp. DOes anyone have a clear pic of a pistol shrimp?

Here is a pic of a pistol shrimp at liveaquaria. None of my pics are clear enough.

Oh, also, they come in different colors so look at the shape more than the color.

If you're still cycling and it's a mantis - get it out while you still can.

Trust me, I've been there.

If you want it, keep it in a second tank, but don't listen to the people who will come on here and tell you that it will "probably" do no harm.

Lightning "probably" won't strike me, but my chances are a lot higher if I'm hugging the only tree in the field at the time.
