    Mantis Shrimp Seems Docile and Not Smashing

    Peacock Mantis Shrimp Arrival

    My Peacock Mantis Shrimp finally came in today so far so good. His name is Butterbean, surprisingly doesn’t seem to mind the gramma and damsel but has gotten into a snail already so that’s why.

    Mixing Saltwater

    Is it ok to put in RODI Water first then adding the salt into the tank with two powerheads then adding the live sand once the salt has been mixed and finally the PVC Pipe? I’m stuck with RODI water in 8 five gallon buckets with lids so just trying to figure out which way would be better

    Hi all. Disclaimer, this is not my personal mantis but it is the one we currently have at the LFS I work at. We’ve had it for a little while but today I noticed this spot on its back, is this shell rot? Something else? I’m gonna be bringing in a PVC burrow for it and am working with the...

    Pregnant Peacock Mantis Shrimp

    My fiancé and I just received our first mantis shrimp and she arrived pregnant. We have had her for about a week and she doesn’t seem to want to eat anything (emerald crabs, hermit crabs and some small fish are in her tank). The eggs are still with her at all times in her burrow. My question is...

    100 gallon with O. scyllarus questions/concerns

    Hey all, It's officially 11 days with my peacock! He (pretty sure it's male) is about 4-4.5 inches and looks quite healthy.
