Lmfao death machine. I doubt algae except maybe if I can find some dragons breath. But yeah I'm gonna move a large rock full of palys into the mantis tank and probably some of my other zoas. Possibly mushrooms. Nothing fancy.

Just remember what's about to happen to her dragons. Hopefully your Mantis won't get to be the size if a bus... Or breath fire.

Wow that's awesome! I tried to see what he meant on the video and I don't see it. But maybe when I get mine it'll be easier to tell in person. Thanks so much!

Found this.... Mantis breaking glass BUT it doesn't say how thick the glass is (looks like a wine glass?) and they way they show him do it is weird.

From what I've read I think they look like legs that deist develop right if that makes sense. I'm sure it would be easier to tell in person than on a video. To the glass thing I'm pretty sure that's extremely rare and probably cheap thin glass, that being said when I start my mantis tank I will be reinforcing the bottom with acrylic just to make me feel better
