LMFAO - ROFL @ Squrlz4Sale.

OMFG. "Skittles candy shell surrounding a fart by Hannibal Lecter."

I'm seriously in tears. My sides hurt. You win IAB comment of the year, in my book.

Never thought I would say "Ooh pretty" when talking about a crustacean...but I did.

@RedontheHead: Apparently it does taste good.

It is used in cuisine in Japan, China and the Philippines.

Do they taste good?

Not sure, but in my imagination they taste like a Skittles candy shell surrounding a fart by Hannibal Lecter.

@freddyferret - Well considering it was about 10 years ago, I'd say he failed miserably at enacting his revenge. LOL!!

I haven't had another reef tank since then, haven't had the time or money to invest to build up another successful reef. I wish liverock wasn't so damned expensive.

I wonder why it does that....embrace the darkness when it lives in light.....what a quandry.

Not only are they formidable predators--they're smart little buggers, too. LINK

There's also another bad ass of the crustacean world named the Pistol Shrimp. I hope the SyFy Channel gets wind of this so we can have...Mantis Shrimp vs. Pistol Shrimp The Movie!

Had one in my tank when I got new rocks. Lost a few critters. I heard the "click" sound it makes when striking, sort of like somebody snapping their fingers at supersonic speed.

Like it says, they break glass. I had to find him. I dipped suspected rocks into fresh water (which sadly kills the sea life on them) until I finally got the little bastard.

Pretty to look at, yes, but it's like a little glittery-rainbowed-hitler.

@Dragonace - I hope you're sleeping with one eye open. That mantis shrimp most likely survived and is currently plotting his revenge. Be afraid, be very afraid.

@Dragonace: My condolences on your minireef. That's terrible! I've never attempted a minireef myself, but I love reading about them and looking at them.

People are ugly enough already. The last thing I want is to see them in High Def.

@Squrlz4sale - You are so right!! I had a 20 Gallon reef tank for a good year or two, then I decided to add couple of extra pounds of cultured live rock to increase the surface area for my corals. After a couple days I started noticing a loud clicking noise coming from my tank at night. I knew right off the bat it had to be a mantis shrimp. I put mantis shrimp traps in there hoping to catch him, but it was no use. Within a week he had successfully wiped out all my fish in the tank, which in turn caused an ammonia and nitrite spike that killed off all my corals. I was so pissed I emptied out all the water and dumped the entire aquarium in a dumpster.

I like the "one, two, three, DEATH!" bits and the pic of the military mantis armour for humans :)

That tears it. I've submitted to the hypothesis of intelligent design. I've just changed my mind about who the designer might be.

Couldn't the vision just be an extension of range into infrared and UV light? Evolutionary it makes sense ... you don't see the sun...watch in infrared to see heat signatures (which is awesome in itself).
Also there are quite a lot of creatures that see UV light (bees for example).

In the world of minireef aquariums, the Mantis Shrimp is a serious pest. They tend to stowaway in the crevices of live rock and sneak into people's aquariums that way. As they grow, they come out to kill the (very expensive) fish swimming by. On top of that, there's the constant worry that the shrimp will break the aquarium glass.

And once they're in there, they're notoriously difficult to get out. They're fast, good at hiding, and fight back. Their nickname among the minireef hobbyists is "Thumb-Splitters."

I just watched the batman beyond episode on genetic splicing.

I would totally do the mantis shrimp.

Weaponized thumb/forefinger combos along with super insane vision.

I wanna spend the rest of my life tripping balls while being able to destroy things with a snap of my fingers... I WOULD BE A GOD AMONG MEN.
