    Hi. I recently stumbled upon a mantis shrimp for sale for 20$ at LA. I have done some research and they are awesome little buggers. I would love to add one to my tank. But, here is the tricky part. I have a 40g community reef tank, and I like my fish and coral so he can't just go in my display...

    Hi, A good friend of mine is looking to buy a pet mantis shrimp after he has moved into his new flat but he's having a lot of trouble finding a place that sells one. I was hoping someone on here would be able to help? It would be preferable if it wasn't too far out from London. Thanks.

    Okay, so, LFS has two Mantis Shrimp, and I think one is a zebra mantis and the other is a peacock mantis. :help: - How much space do they need? (I know that you can only keep one per tank) - Can you put snails, or other fast fishes (like damsels or chromis) with it? - What's the ideal...

    Hi! So I created a 4'Wx1'9"Lx3'H cabinet for this aquarium. I'm looking at 40-50 gal tanks. I'm very new to the saltwater hobby and I know a mantis shrimp is probably the hardest thing to do for a beginner. But mantis shrimps remind my dad of his past days and loves them so I wanted one...

    Just a heads up. Saw there's a special on NatGeo Wild for the Mantis shrimp. Something cool to check out. Airs in a half hour for me and I assume I have East coast programming for Dish. Just thought I'd give a heads up to those interested. DVR set, time to crash!:banana:

    Hoping for some urgent help here! In the last few weeks 3 of my emerald crabs have died in my tank. My parameters all appear perfect and I'm religious about my water changes and husbandry. I just assumed it was a coincidence but have since started hearing a clicking noise coming from the tank...

    I got a free truvu tank and it is 20 gallons. The dimensions are 36+12+12. It is about 3/16 inch thick acrylic. I believe it is acrylic. Is that to thin and small for a green mantis shrimp or peacock mantis shrimp

    Picked up my mantis today, finally. I know its a smasher, learned that when I detached him from my heater. He's alittle over an inch long. I didn't actually take a picture of the one I got but from the fish store they had 2 they had caught from live rock. I've been on a waiting list and finally...

    Okay so I recently got a free 20 high with everything included so I couldn't say no obviously. I've been doing a ton of reading on mantis shrimp lately and that's the direction I want to do since their set ups are so simple. I plan to get a small peacock mantis and I know I will need a tank...

    I have a new 55 Gallon setup and I just purchased three large pieces of live rock (from Florida I think). The second day I saw a Mantis Shrimp and did a big of research and decided to remove it. It ended up swimming around the next day so I caught it in a net and got rid of it. The next day I...

    Hi, I have just been generally reading through forums today... and came across some information which have made me think... I might have a hitchhiker mantis shrimp! I know that they are a rare hitchhiker to have, and I really hope I haven't got one... I have constantly had a problem with red...
