Well, geting closer to setting up my mantis tank. As mentioned earlier, my wife is against it....well. She is giving me 2 weeks, so I went to work. When I first caught him I set up a 10 gallon filled about 1/2 way with an airstone and 1 PVC pipe. The next day I purchased a few more PVC "homes for him. Today I went to get "salt" and just happened to also grab a heater and a filter.
The only thing left is a little sand and a rock or 2 from the main.
If I don't get evicted from my own house first.
12 years of marriage= patience!!!

There isn't much neutral ground here. It seems you either "don't get it" or LOVE it.

Seriously, its all good natured for the most part. If she was "totally" against it, she would get her way.
It does help that the kids want to keep him too. She's starting to spoften up.
