I have a dream

If ever one day in the future after college i would love to do a mantis shrimp tank. I think their amazing creatures. But i would probably never get to it unless i found 3000 dollars on the ground. I would also love to get a 500 gallon tank and keep a green moray eel and a sand tiger shark in it. But thats only a expense thought that ran across my mind today

Mantis shrimp only need 10 gallon tanks minimum.... So all you need is the tank, strong filter, few pounds of sand and rock and your done. Hah well under 200 dollars actually!

You could always find a good deal on craigslist. I just saw a 135 gallon tank, stand, and canister filters for $200. Not that expensive to start up a tank for a mantis shrimp. Lights to grow corals and protein skimmers are what drain people of their money! Both of which you don't need. It would be cool to do a display refugium type tank. Have all different types of macroalgae and the mantis shrimp.
