Hey everyone. Been a long time since I was active on this site - I miss it, but RL takes precedence and I haven't had the actually chance to share anything. Well, here's one of my marine tanks - a tank that was recently moved from one house to another as I shifted. I acquired a G. platysoma mantis - a beautiful boy which I named Morpheus (Morph). Morph was QTed for 3 weeks and released into his new home around a week ago. He's approximately 3.5" and very, very interactive. Among all the mantises I've kept over the years, his personality is so far the best to date. Morph currently shares the 10G display with my 1-year-old juvi Clarkii clownfish and a 6-month-old sixline wrasse. The 10G is sumped, but it took me a while to realize that the tank is quite small to accomodate Morph - so I'm planning on transferring him to either a 16G or 30G in the upcoming weeks. Because of the nature of our move from one house to another, things have been very chaotic. I've already lost $2000 worth of livestock during the move - and one of my tanks (a discus/spiny eel tank) is still left behind in the old house for now, because my fish were getting stressed to the point of getting sick. Some of the specimens I have are more than 2-years-old and I raised them from 1.5" to 7.5". Each discus fish loss cost me RM 1280, and I lost around 5 of them in the past few weeks. It was a big blow, and I'm still trying to get my older marine tanks settled in. Anyhow, here are several pics of Morph in his temporary home:
