Personally I would try to catch it and give it its own tank they are incredible creatures.
That being said...peacock mantis shrimp, pound for pound are one of the most adept apex predators on earth and have no issues making pretty much anything living in your tank a meal once mature.
I want to get a mantis, and give it a home where it can be observed and enjoyed as well as taken care of in the shop we are setting up.


They have the most sophisticated eyes in the animal kingdom.
That they do, n those eyes miss nothing

Do you house a "Reef Safe" Angelfish in your reef tank?
