I beg to differ. I'm pretty sure that not every saltwater species would cost you $20 a pop. You can get beautiful damsels on Live Aquaria for $5.

Yes i realize that not EVERY saltwater fish costs 20 bucks, but in my opinion the average cost of a fish is 20 dollars.

Mantis shrimp can't be kept with corals or inverts, but can be kept in a small species tank, which will be cheaper. I would say a ten gallon would be great for one normally sized mantis.

Nope, unless you want to. Just feed the strips that you feed eels. I think their clam but I could be wrong.
