What to do with undesireables?

What does everyone do with undesirable hitchhikers. So far I've heard of selling, flushing, keeping, smashing.

If all goes well I'll be getting about 160Lbs of LR next week.

If the general concensus was to keep them in a small tank, then I'd pick up a 10Gal at the LFS while I was there to pick up my Fuge.

Is it OK to just smash the things with a wooden stick and let the cleanup crew have a buffet?

well most of the time if i find some thing in the rock that i dont want he will go to the sump. if he is still doing more harm there then i give him to any one who wants it. i do this becasue i feel so bad about killing some thing. (but i do deer hunt but i am eating it) so if i found some thing to eat all of the crabs in my tank i would be feeding them to it.

nope if i got one of them i woudl have traded him in at the lfs. they sell fast and they sell for like $40. but in my 25 lbs of keys rock i got from liverocks.com i did not get any mantis. and if i did i might have just set up a tank just for him.

I've been wondering this, too--I won't be able to kill anything. Just me. But who wants a mantis shrimp? I thought they were just plain pests . . . are they kept by some folks on purpose?
