That is a really bad idea, Peacocks are on of the biggest mantis. I've had mine for 3 months and its about 6" and it's still growing. I can think of a lot more reasons why (besides size) this is not smart to do. Please don't put a mantis in a 2 gal Nano.

Here is a really good site that i used to do research before I got mine. It has info from Dr. Roy Caldwell.

Peacocks are Odontodactylus scyllarus

Roy's List of Stomatopods for the Aquarium

No problem, sorry I hate to be the "You can't do That" guy. If you have any more question feel free.
