Feeding Time! Peacock Mantis Shrimp

Here’s a couple short clips, the first is of me feeding our Peacock Mantis Shrimp. I’m curious how big he will actually get in our tank. He’s grown quite a bit over that past couple months it seems. Every time I see him I’m amazed by how intelligent the mantis shrimp appear to be. In the second video I was trying to film the mantis out and about. Pretty sure he was breaking off pieces of a monti cap for building material, but then he saw me. Poof! 🙂

  1. Thanks for sharing! I was wondering what is the green stuff the Mantis is hiding in in the first video?

  2. It’s a macro algae (not sure which) that made it’s way into my refugium. Looks a bit nicer than the standard caulerpa & chaeto.
