    Hello, I am wondering as to where I could get a clown or peacock mantis shrimp:eek:. It might sound crazy to some, but I would love to have one. I live in Canada. Any ideas would be great and might be rewarded with delicious karma;D

    I've kept mantis, in particular peacock (O.s.) mantis, for years. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

    Great! I do have a few questions!;D And thanks for alerting me to the imitation! I saw its coloration and could tell it wasn't a peacock mantis shrimp!:angry:
