So on a very unrelated topic to all of this oscar stress lol, my cousin found me a new friend at work yesterday. A baby praying mantis. Of course I gladly accepted and went to the pet store after work and bought a tall terrarium for it. It is very exciting. I fed him a baby cricket this morning and he gladly accapted. He seems quite content with his new home lol. I'll post pics when I get home later

They areven not too hard to take care of. You just give them something to climb on., spray the cage with water and get a mild heat lamp and they are good too go. I went a little out of control and ended up spending nearly 200$ :S lol, but that's not necessary. As far as feeding they will eat pretty much anything they can kill, so you can just go in your back yard and grab something haha

That's cool.

I get them all over my property and house every fall. Big ones.

Wonder why I see so many in the fall, but seldom see them the rest of the year?

Not sure, might have something to do with all the leaves falling off trees. Might make them come down from tree tops
