Clicking/Knocking Sounds



See that critter above? Looks kinda cute, eh? That's a mantis shrimp; some view the species as a pest, some view it as a fascinating creature.

We think we have one of those in our tank. Over the last three nights, there's been loud clicking/knocking noises coming out of our tank. Loud enough to wake us both up. It's like a miniature jack-hammer inside a rock or something.

About.com has a great article about the species. I guess our question now is, do we keep it? We found a dead crab inside our tank today, but that may have been the result of skirmishes between crabs for shell space. I guess if Flit or Gaston gets offed, we'll have to reconsider.
