What to do with This Tank

Well, i got an unused 28 bow... what should be done with it? Id like to make it into a mantis tank, but afraid it might break right thru the acrylic (and im not sure whether the sides are glass or acrylic)

PS sorry i wasnt sure where to put this thread

A mantis shouldn't break through the acrylic as easily as glass, but then again that's why you should purchase a "spearer" and not a "crusher." Those terms are just an easy way to differentiate the appendages and most reputable lfs' or online retailers can differentiate for you.

Yeah... spearers mostly like fish, while crushers go for crusteceans... are the sides of bow fronts glass or acrylic?

Depends on the manufacturer. I'd find out who makes it and give them a call. I wouldn't keep any mantis, regardless of type, with fish. Really do deserve thier own specie-specific enclosure, but definitely worth their weight
