They are omnivores. Scavengers, like most other crabs.

I kept hearing loud clicking noises from my tank for about a month or so swore I had a mantis shrimp till I moved my heater from my dt down to my sump wasn't till then I noticed the heater clicked loudly every time it turned on and off. New heater no clicking. Have noticed it faintly in another tank with same kind of heater

the clicking of the heater is prob the 2 elements "smacking" together as they cool, this is what triggers the heater to trun on

I agree with X, I doubt it's a mantis. Some power heads tend to click when they cycle. Or it's a crab. If you aren't mysteriously loosing livestock, it isn't a shrimp. And if it is a mantis, they are cool enough and costly enough to have its own small tank.
