Not sure if the image will show up. A buddy asked me if I wanted this Mantis shrimp but just want to make sure what it is before adding it to my tank.

It shows up but I'm not sure what kind, looks like a P. Ciliata to me. Is it a spearer?

If you get a good look at the eyes and they look checkered, it's a ciliata

I'd say Pseudosquilla Ciliata too, but honestly need a few more pictures to be sure. If it's a spearer (two spiky raptorial appendages that are used for soft bodied prey) then its P. Ciliata.
