I also agree on a Mantis Shrimp- you should probably google mantis shrimp and your read all sorts of issues with the same question you have and it turns out to be a mantis- They are very good hiders and are fast- Most hunt at night or if extremely hungry they will come out during the day to look for food...

Thank you for the fast replies, I love this forum!
If they can come in on live rock from 6 months ago than yes that is a possibility
Okay so if this is a mantis how do I trap it, will the glass jar method work? Do I have to camp out with net and flashlight?

So I am going to try the inverted bottle method, with some slightly freezer burned shrimp. Any other traps I should try?

I have no fish currently in the tank. I will try starving the mantis. However If the mantis does not rear it's ugly head I'm thinking of getting a snowflake eel or octopus. And using the QT as the fishes permanent home.
