I'm not sure. I used some sand from an old setup. It is 2" deep all over though. Sorry I couldn't give you a better answer.

Thanks Travis. I have 18 new frags in now. I will have to arrange and glue them tomorrow. I will try to get pics then or on Monday :)

league's lookin good.

 

has he/she smashed up any corals or mushies yet?

im worried about the thought of putting nice zoo's in the tank and having them used as a punching bag.

Doesn't bother any corals other than walking across them. The only thing he has smashed is an astrea I put in for him. Don't worry about your corals, they'll be fine :)

Your tank looks sweet! Reminds me a lot of my old 2.5g mantis playground.

 

Oh Cliffy, if you decide to treat this tank with FWE too I would remove the mantis. When I treated my 2.5 mantis tank with FWE, I netted out my mantis and put him in a plastic cup while I treated the tank and did the waterchange. I have heard that they can tolerate FWE, but I was scared to take the chance.

I really like your tank. Your mantis is sweet looking. I keep a turbo snail with him and he doesn't even look at it. I feed mine about once a week with a freshwater red claw crab and I also feed him some krill once or twice a week. I have never had a problem with him hitting the glass.

 

Here is a couple pics of my Mantis.

Thanks! That's good to know. How about molting? Any issues? How often? League is a real character. Your mantis is awesome, btw :happy:

Thanks Travis. I'm about to do a water change. Diatoms have disappeared for the most part. Got a little cyano on the filter intake. Copepods out the ying yang.

Love the mantis and the black sand. Your sons tank is pretty cool too.

Also I've always wanted to see a sea kitten in a tank
