I had received my oct and kept them for two days.
Today I cut a mantis shrimp to half to feed them,the male one ate only a part and the female one took all.
There are still a problem:the female one get hurt on the back of mantle(skin is not cover ),I can see she is sensitive about the wound,but I get no cure for that now.Shall I consider about some medical ways ?

The damage should mend by itself but you will want to watch for infection. There are few treatments available but Tetracycline can usually be purchased world wide and has been successfully used. You might try buying Tetracycline and putting a very small amount on her food in an attempt to prevent infection because of the small environment.
