Food for my 5" mantis.

Bruce (Bruce Lee.. =) couldn't help it. ) Is currrently making his way through a handful of manila clams living with him.
every week or so I hear him go to town on one and go in to clear out the shells when he's done.
I try to feed him cubed meaty foods but he only takes a couple bites and throws it out, same with silversides and shrimp.
Thought I'd throw him some variety and see what happens.

Vancouver/burnaby/richmond only pls.

Thanks!

if you have a small second tank consider getting a marble crayfish they clone themselves and you can feed the clones to the mantis shrimp, thats what my friend does.
