Mantis?

I'm thinking that's what this is, I just wanted to be sure...

Thanks!

I was sitting looking at a new mushroom frag I had picked up over the weekend and saw something skitz when I approached the tank. I immediately ran for my chair, a bowl, a basting syringe (like if you were going to inject juice into a roast), and a cup of fresh water. I climbed up on the chair, reached in and grabbed the frag rock put it in an empty bowl, shot a syringe full of fresh (tap, no less, lol) water at him and he came FLYING out of the rock into my bowl. I then added some salt water to the bowl so that he didn't expire immediately, just in case I find a home for him! They guy I got the frag from said that he had a mantis in that tank that was living peacefully with his other tank mates. Who would have thunk that the darn thing was in the golfball size rock that he broke off for me while I was there?! Yowza!! I PMed him to let him know that I had it just in case he wanted it back, lol. Yeah right! As if?!

My mantis has a new home! I'm sending him off with the 5 red crabs I captured from my tank! Too cool!
