I'm not sure about price but probably around $20-50.

If it were me I'd definitely be doing a species only tank to be safe, don't want your fishy friends or the mantis becoming dinner for anyone

So basically if I want one I just need a species only tank.

They will kill and eat nearly anything, a lot of people with smasher type of mantis find feeding them a snail or crab actually keeps them healthier. They are a very interesting animal and worth having a species only tank IMO.

Exactly so, and definitely log it if you do so. Now that I think about it bluezooaquatics.com usually has a good selection of mantis shrimp, look around there if you haven't already

My lfs has zebras for 15 and peacocks for 30. Eventually all fish will be prey as mantis grows. So species only would be best way to protect your investment. Also, They are messy eaters and can quickly fowl water. Knowing all that, I still want one. Thought about putting it in fuge but seems counter productive.

Shrimp

Six different kinds. I have never seen some of these. Not that I have seen tons of them.

The bumble bee has spears!

Tiger only gets 3 inches.
