View Full Version : Smasher Food?

06/24/2016, 03:55 AM

Ive read that If u keep a smaher it is important to give it living food that has hard shell, because otherwise it will drop it's "hammers" in molt/shed. Is that true? I want to get a mantis shrimp but If thats the case i have to get a spearer wich is not prefered. Sooo... Can i give a smasher like frozen clams and it would still be healthy?

Thank you for reading. Any other info about mantises are appreciated. ^^

Smasher Mantis Shrimp use their clubs to drill through rock. So even if a Mantis Shrimp is fed soft foods(Frozen shrimp), they'll still use their clubs for other uses.

I just try to keep my mantis tank stocked with cuc and it sorts itself out...

I still drop a frozen clam or two in every few days and I've seen him go after LRS food as well.
