Does using an animal as a feeder count as animal cruelty?

i love mantis shrimp! they are so cool. but i would never be able to feed one live crabs... i would feel too bad
I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not have their motives questioned.....Dont worry about what people think, because they seldom do.......If you cant laugh at yourself I'll be glad to do it for you.....stop trying to impress people, they're too busy trying to impress everyone else to notice
Well done video. Can anything at all be kept with a mantis? After watching a few other videos it seems like anything & everything that moves would be fair game for a mantis...
If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Ha, I just asked a question about setting up a MSOWLR (Mantis Shrimp Only With Live Rock) tank up in the saltwater section.
From what I've learned not really. They'll kill most anything in the tank from fish, to snails, to shrimp. They aren't good with corals either because in their quest to build their burrow they aren't picky about what's attached to a rock when they want to move it.
I think they can get to a foot long. They're one of the larger species.
I don't think so. Most feeders have their lives ended fairly quickly, and honestly given that they're dying to a predator it'd be hard to refer to predation as animal cruelty.
Watch my tank progress from Craigslist salvage to fishy habitat: Aaron's Tank
The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.
