Photo of the Week - Zebra Mantis

The Zebra Mantis Shrimp (Lysiosquillina maculata) is an excellent candidate for keeping in the marine aquarium. They are very hardy, extremely "personable" and eat readily, but will consume fish they are housed with. Lysiosquillina maculata is the largest stomatopod with recorded sizes up to 40 cm. They can be kept in small aquariums, but must be given a deep sand bed in which to burrow.
