Dr. Roy, i found a misstake in the Gonodactylaceus graphurus page.

Aquarium substrate: Requires tight-fitting, long narrow cavity, either pvc pipe or in rubble

Suitability for Aquarium: Good; needs stable water parameters; not active but usually can be seen looking out of cavity entrance; use of unusual telson that mimics urchin is interesting

Availability: Rare; occasionally can be specially ordered from collectors in Hawaii; while common at 20–30 m, because of the nature of their cavities, E. guerinii are extremely difficult to collect alive


This ist not for G. graphurus, but E. guerinii

And the Hyperlink in Distinguishing Characters (same page) is broken.

Greetings
Timmy

Thanks Dr Roy!

Getting a mantis over here in the UK has been a nightmare as even the best stores categorise as Small, Medium and Peacock Hopefully I can now diredt people to your list to get a better idea of what I'm getting.

Cheers,

Ed

Timmy,

When the material was put up, some changes were made to my layout. Obviously a few glitches occurred in the translation. I should have proofed the site before I released the url. Sorry. We will fix it Monday or Tuesday.

Roy

Roy's List is now fixed (I hope)!

The G. graphurus page is fixed so that it now has the correct information on care and availability. You can also now see the drawing of the carinule.

never ending mantis shrimp

I have only had my tank for 6 months and have already had 3 mantis shrimp. They hitch hiked onto my LR. I got rid of the first two and now I can't catch this third one. Why did they appear right after each other and not all at once? I have yet to see the current one but I can sure hear him! I have a couple of clown fish, a yellow tang, a 6 line wrasse,a cleaner shrimp and a blood shrimp. None of them have been affected by the mantis but all of my cleaner crew (snails) have been smashed. I desparetly want to get rid of it! I'm just more curious as to why one keeps appearing after the other?

Chances are that it is a Neogonodactylus wennerae. I have on ethat I keep with fast moving fish, and larger snails. Slow moving and ground dwelling fish may be considered food, bt I have never lost any damsels or faster moving fish with it. Smaller snails and hermit crabs though are looked at as food on the move.

wow I have this bookmarked to study. Since I have heard of the horror stories, (busting aquarium glass, severing fingers) I can now read some actual research instead of anecdotal information.

Love the list and thanks for all the info.

Also I was wondering, is there any mantis shrimp that you can pair up in a 20g aquarium?

I typically don't advise it because of the chance that one will kill the other when they molt. However, small species that are pretty much restricted to cavities such as Haptosquilla and Gonodactylellus can coexist if there are a number of tight fitting cavities in the live rock.
