Hey guys! A few months ago I got my little red N Wannare mantis from TBS. Hadnt seen her since she went in and honestly thought she didnt make it. But today I saw her poking her head out!!! So I got a piece of Krill and thought I would try to feed her with the tongs so she can get used to meals. She saw it and jumped out of her hole and grabbed it! Im so happy. I just thought I would share. Sorry glass has a smudge, I was cleaning it when I saw her!!

I had one from my order as well I liked it but never saw mine. Wife couldn’t stand the constant clicking. I caught it with the bottle trap and gave it to a friend to put in his sump with live rock. Will get a drag out of it at least when my tank is ready for SPS in 3-4 months or so.

Oh yes shes way bigger than when I first got her! Heard her punching things occasionally but I also have a pistol shrimp so hard to tell between them
