they eat fish, shrimp and crabs. they will take easily to a variety of meaty frozen foods. feed once every two days or less. soak frozens in selcon or sme other marine food supplement once in a while. stay away from FW feeders.

 

20gal minimum. any standard glass is fine. needs LR, LR rubble, and a sand bed of at least 2 inches.

 

fairly reef safe, but small fish are just meat as are some cuc members like shrimp and small crabs. hermits and snails shuold be fine. make sure any small frags are glued down or attached to something the mantis cant move.
