When I split my mushroom rock I found what looked like a rolypoly in a tunnel. I think its a mantis shrimp though he is still small. Will he be ok in my display tank or will he cause problems?

They should be in a tank alone. I have read that they can even crack the glass in a tank. I would be careful if i were you.

only the big ones break glass (6" peacocks)

 

if he's as small as a "rolly poly", you should be ok for a while.

i dont know of anything else that looks like that. there were various tunnels through the liverock and before i saw what looked like a rolled up mantis, i saw the head of some kind of crab like thing. i dont have any pics though.
