Mantis Shrimp Pains

Ok I recently purchased some LR from Liverocks.com and It came with a few suprises.. Among the few hitchhikers was a mantis shrimp.. I have tried for days to get the mantis shrimp out of the tank.. I have tried HIGH SG sw dips. No Luck... I have tried FW dips.. No Luck.. traps.. no Luck He has eaten just about all the crabs that cam with the tank along with about 3 brittle stars.. I cant seem to get rid of this guy.. I know the rock he is in.. Which is about a 20+# of LR.. There is only a few more creature that I have in the tank due to this pain in my ***.. I really need to get rid of him.. Help Me please

take the rock out and dip it in a bucket or large container of room temperature RO water (about 70 degrees or so). He'll soon squirt out like a banner from a pop-gun, and you can take out the rock and cup him up. . Worked for me with a mantis and 2 different hitchhiker crabs.

thats how I did it. but mine moved from rock to rock. so I had to have a buckett of RO sitting there for a day or so. then when I saw him I imediatly reached in and grabed the rock and diped it. He came out.
