Here's some picture of my mantis 1.5inch G.ternatensis, Gabriella to share.

 

Shy fellow in a 5G picotank. Likes to move pebbles and only comes out when there is light.

hey guys,

 

i have a spare 10 gallon tank, and im gonna set it up as a planted tank. i cant decide if i should go seahorse or mantis, but most likley it'll be mantis.

 

now here are my 2 questions...

 

1. Will a peacock mantis be able to happily live in my 10 gallon?

2. if not, what would be an active, colorful mantis i could get?

 

Thanks!

Just found a mantis in my LR. It's small, 2" maybe and green. Anybody interested, pay shipping + packaging and he is yours. :happy:
