Depends on the tank you'll be putting it in. I love the mantis as well, but it would require a larger tank as they may get quite a bit bigger than the tiger(I think 3 in. for the tiger and 7 -8 in. on the peacock)

noo im pretty sure that the Zebra mantis get bigger because i saw one for sale a couple days ago and it was a show size and was 12 in. long......................

the zebra will require a specialized tank and gets even more needy the bigger it gets (full grown it will be the biggest of all mantis shrimp), which will be very big. Depends on if you want to keep anything else with your mantis, I have a pair clowns and a sixline with my peacock which made the deal for me.

Never leaving the burrow was a down mark for me also. Such a deep sand bed for him to make a home is needed and takes a lot of tank space
