One of the strangest and most unusual animals we can keep at home would be Peacock mantis shrimp.
I always dreamed to have one. One day I saw one in a dealers tank. I was amazed looking at him from up close – it had a unique look with both eyes moving independently in different directions. I have never realized how intelligent the animal was who has been staring back at me. After a short observation by both party’s (shrimp at me,me at the shrimp)my decision was made. I took the little fella home with me.
Seems like after couple of days he started to recognize me. I am still afraid to feed him from my hands (they can split my hand with the claws), but I think soon I will. Stay tuned for some videos on how to set up the fish tank for the mantis shrimp.
