I’m really starting to consider if it’s even actually a mantis. I saw something weird last night and one of the eyeballs was expanding and then coming back. Like a kind of filter feeder, but on the other hand, the other eye looks like it’s following my every move tho. It’s weird 

I took a video, but I can’t post videos. I sent a video of it to WV Reefer, but she didn’t know either. It’s just a mystery to me.

That sounds weird. A good weird though I think. And yes well done a big jump again in how stuff looks. Everything, especially your photo skills

The thing I don’t understand is how a filter feeder can seem very intelligent. It just seems intelligent to me. If it even is a filter feeder. It also ate a piece of mysis.

You should get an instagram account just for posting fish stuff. That's what I did-it allows you to post videos to your threads, and a very large number of people from this forum are on IG.

Hm, I like that idea, I may just do that when I get home. I’ll have to get everyone’s Instagram tho.

So my carpet nem is for some reason looking a little bleached? It’s a little bit lighter then usual? Is it bc I’m mainly just feeding but mysis and scallops? I just bought some fresh ocean perch? Could I feed that to it? Would that be better than scallops?

I don’t understand what’s going on with my long tentacle nem. It has changed colors like 5 different times. It’s now green. It was at first blue, then white, then a darker blue, and now green

Does anyone know why this could be happening? Why is it changing colors yet again?

It could be maturing. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

 

Have you done anything different? Different foods? 

 

Looks good though. 😊

Yes actually, I started feeding it fresh ocean snapper instead of scallops and mysis.

Maybe the change in nutrition could have something to do with it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

 

 

 

Go do some science and find out. 😄
