Just came across some peacock mantis shrimp videos on youtube, and oh man I fascinated by it, it’s vicious creature but people have them in fish tank as pets. These mantis shrimp can break through clam shells, eat other fishes, attack and eat crabs, damn I want one LOL.
Anyhow, these creature cost about $60 average, and no shipping, you would have to come to the store and pick it up. However I could be wrong, some places might ship them over night with extra cost. I don’t think this shrimp take much time for maintenance, since it appear to be so powerful strong …
