As the old Reef saying goes "one man's pest is another pet" or something like that. I would not advocate "smashing" anything. See if your LFS is interested in any "unwanteds". Odds are they will be. Worst case scenario, you could utilize any meat and feed fish, corals etc. I hate to see life just wasted
Also any leftover "smashed" food may cause a spike in such a new tank if left to the clean up crew.

They are actually really interesting. Just because I don't want one in my reef, doesnt mean they wouldn't be cool in a smal acrylic tank.

i have two mantis shrimp in my 30 gal. fuge, one is a bright red the other is a dark gray/blackish color. we feed them small shrimp and they have gotten quite used to us, but they were a pain getting out of the main tank.

When I got my LR.com order, I was almost hoping to get one. I even had a 10 gallon set up just in case.
But.....no Mantis.....yet.

I may have a mantis, I don't know. (crossing my fingers that its a pistol.) IF I did have one I would stick him in my fuge. except that I don't have a fuge. so, He will go to the pet store.

some of the large worms and crabs that I was able to remove went in the trash bin though. I couldn't bring myself to kill em quick.
