    when i had a mantis, i used a wooden skewer to feed it, just cut a piece of raw shrimp and poked it on the skewer and put it in the tank and he would tear it right off the skewer!

    my web site is still in the works...... i have never built one before and it is prooving difficult, i dont want a crappy looking site to make my product look bad. but here is the product info. The Mantis is a unique, hand-crafted aquatic feeding instrument. It was specifically designed to be an all-in-one feeding tool capable of ; feeding large meaty foods to aggressive fish, gentle placement of meaty foods, and direct liquid feeding. The feeding stick is made from carbon fiber, making it very durable.
    Aggressive feeders: Place food on pointed tip of feeding stick and present to fish.
    Drop feeding: Place food on tip of stick. ‘Drop’ in place by gently pulling back on feeding stick .
    Liquid feeding: Prime the tube by pumping the stick several times in tank water, R.O. water, or Liquid food container. Draw the liquid food in. Place the Mantis tip up stream of desired location and push the rod in. You may want to shut pumps off
    Corners: The inner rod is very flexible and strong, making hard to reach areas that much easier.
    Maintenance: Sharpen tip using a electric pencil sharpener

    Sounds interesting - you selling these? How much?
    I collect PEs, and I'm always looking to trade for ones I don't have yet.
