clint, you wanting crabs as food for the mantis? or you starting a crab only tank?

if crab only, let me know, my lfs here has some red hairy crabs, that have anemones on thier shell. it's not aptaisa though. but it's a small anemone that has a symbiotic relationship with the crab. i think they were like 7 bucks. i could pick one up and ship to ya if you like.

here's a pic of what mine looked like, before i returned him.




he also regularly carries anemone (porcelain) crabs as well.

I don't have any crabs, but it might be fun to put this guy in with him and see who wins. :funny:
