He is going into my 29gal empty tank for the time being as soon as I get the salinity up a little bit.. He is currently in my wet/dry sump... Finally after at least a month.. I was just getting ready to order a trap too!!!


They dont need that much light do they...

I was thinking Cant I just just leave him in the WEt/dry part of the sump.. I mean I have no biobale in there or anything.. I could just throw all my bad crabs into the wet/dry part and that way he could eat them..


James

Or would the 29gal be better?

Thanks Guys,

BTW I think i still might have another in my Main Tank Still.. I think this mantis was after the new sally lightfoot crabs that I just put in.. Either that or the Zebra Hermits..

Sure is! Looks almost like the one we removed from our 75g a couple years back:

I said forget the LR that I was going to give him I took it back... I want to see him without having to look under LR or anything... All my hitchhiker crabs are going to be going into that tank as well so he can have food.. I think it will be quite interesting to see what happens If he does survive.. But i figure if he survived the shipment of LR then he should survive anything..

They are pretty cool creatures, and its usually fairly easy to find someone to "adopt" them. Mine is living in Oklahoma - has been for the last couple years. 8)
