for a "home" that you can see him in, give him a small section of PVC sized accordingly.
Thats a great Idea will do that later today
Can I ask, what'd you do to catch him?
Well I was looking in my tank for the small one that I have been seeing and I saw something that looked pink 1 minute and then it was gone.. about 5 mins later i saw him on the bottom of an easily accessable rock.. I grabbed the rock slowly and he came off and swam away.. About 5 mins later I noticed he was back in the same spot. so I grabbed the rock again slowly and started pulling it out.. I pulled quicker this time and he came out with the LR
I then placed him in my wet/dry sump for the time being and held the LR
over the water.. He wanted the water so off the rock he jumped and into the water.. Caught...
I was afraid for my fingers but managed to come out will all of them and no cuts... There is another Mantis in there the is about half the size of this one.. I think i will try and get him the same way or something... He is really small so I dont have too worry too much less that half an inch... Funny thing is right before i saw him i was debating on buying a trap to catch the small one i knew about.. Funny how things work out sometimes... My wife likes checking him out in the other tank but she doesnt like the sally lightfoots i put in the reef tank the other day... She says they look like spiders...
