Mantis update, Clash of the Titans!
Well, as some of you know I have been trying to capture bonnie and clyde (my 5" sally lightfoot crabs) for some time. I was first going to sell them as a mated pair, however I now suspect them of being polyp eaters and do not wish them on anyone anymore. So, I am up late last night (1:30a.m) and decide to take a quick look at the tank before going to sleep, when what do I see!?!!? It clyde hugging a powerhead intake totally oblivious to his vulnerability. So ever so stealthily I run to the closet where I keep supplies and get my big net. Within seconds of returning to the tank clyde is caputred, an incredible feat if you knew all I have done in the past weeks to try and get him.
So what to do now with this monster crab, its 1:30 in the morning and red eyed demon he may be, I am humane. So I do the only logical thing, I drop him in the JBJ nano cube.
Now your caught up. So the thing that clyde doesn't realize is that my peacock mantis is enroute to my house as we speak, ready to be realeased into the JBJ I have fashioned for him. I wanted to start this post as I am sure an epic battle will ensue soon and I plan to capture it with my camera and update everyone. It should be very exciting if all goes well. I am posting a Pre-mantis pic of the JBJ to give everyone a reference to just how big clyde actually is, and to serve as a before pic of the now peaceful JBJ land.
Here's to swimmin with bowlegged women.
