Lol thats probably why it didnt work bc trying to get in w/o it flipped around is like trying to get out of the trap. Take pics if you catch him, theyre very interesting.

Try putting a live crab in the bottle with a bit of bait for the crab to eat. The mantis will go into the bottle for the crab and then get stuck.

I had a mantis. I saw the thing jump out of the rock and smash into one of my fish. It was lucky that I saw it happen. I reached into the tank and took out the piece of live rock it was in. I did a freshwater dip and go the mantis out. He didn't like the FW dip but it didn't kill him and I took him to my LFS.
