Re: OH NO, Mantis Shrimp at large #11
No luck catchin it,put the rocks on egg crate over an empty bucket then squirted the holes with sparkling water. Absolutely NOTHING!!! took me all morning to pluck up the courage to actually pick the rocks out of the tank. Rinsed them off with saltwater then (with great trepidation) put em back. So to sum it up, gained nothing except a cloudy tank and neck ache from trying to spot it

Re: OH NO, Mantis Shrimp at large #15
GOT HIM!!!, he looks a bit worse for wear but is still alive so far, caught him with the fizzy water technique, will try to get some photo's 2day. He's in a small container with holes in, inside the tank for now, will leave him alone for a while with lights off and see what happens. YEAGHHHHH
