Nah only warns them. Now my big (bullseye) one i can't say for sure. He constantly moves in the shadows around the tank and is constantly snapping. I do have a few snail shells piled up too. Lol.

Snapping could be a pistol shrimp too. I have a tiger pistol and hear him popping on a regular basis. It's loud enough to hear over conversation in the room. From what I know of pistols, though, I think they tend to live at the bottom and burrow in the sand, not hide in a hole of a rock. I know next to nothing about mantis shrimp, so I couldn't tell you if they hide in rock holes. Hope you figure out what it is.

Found my mantis in the rockwork about mid tank level. Had a series of caves and paths it hunted.

Wow. That doesn't bode well, then.

If he knows which rock it is its good cuz you can remove it and either freshwater dip it or as I did many moons ago obliterate it with a hammer and caught the mantis and re-homed it to a friend.

Remove rock and dip it into freshwater in a bucket. Should exit on its own. As I said I just smashed my rock with a hammer and when it broke into rubble it had no where to hide.
