Crawled into your hand?!?!?!

Dude, they dont call those guys "Thumb Splitters" for nothing. I hear the big guys hit you like a .22 caliber pistol.

I don't know that I would want to be thwapt by any mantis shrimp.

The fish place in Maryland near Indian Head Hwy, orders them for the local Japanese restaurant. They are a bout 5" long and about as big around as a hot dog. ABSOLUTLY beutiful though. VERY bright gree and maroons and oranges. Wow. Sexy.

I wouldn't put my hand near one though.

29 gallon bow front - Just plants, currently cycling.


10 Gallon w/ 1 male betta and alge eater (not sure what kind), looking for something to add with the betta.

I don't want to either, but I can't help myself. I have excellent insurance just in case. They just grab the shrimp and run. Used to feed my 36" Red tail catfish and pirana by hand as well.
And yes I would like to hand feed a Great White as well. However this would need to be done from the sanctity of a cage mind you, crazy not stupid.

Let's get a line wet!
