He'd make a sweet MOWLR centerpiece!!! Wish I still had my BC29 set up, I'd offer you $50 and I would cover shipping :-( I'm sure rehoming him will be relatively easy. Good luck!!!

If it is truly a peacock mantis as you say, a 10g is gonna be to small for him in the long run. They get quite big. They also have the best eyesight in the animal kingdom.

I agree... I've heard minimum between 30 and 40b, I wouldn't wanna crowd the little guy- they have a reputation for busting the glass out of their tanks.....
