I was wondering why she spent the last few days gathering up sand and rocks and taking it back to her cave. I guess it was time for her to molt. Here are a few pics my Mantis Shrimp Roxy.

Wow I have been trying to take a picture of mine for months now but it is very camera shy...thought I had one on the weekend just to be blocked by some algae on the glass, kid you not!

Roxy comes out of her cave whenever I come over to the tank. She either wants to attack me or she likes her picture taken.... :)

What size tank do you have her in? My peacock is quite reclusive in his 20 gal.

I have her in a 29 gallon Biocube.
