Dreaming of a smasher
Guys, time to tread new waters.
I am thinking about going to the store and adopting a peacock mantis. From what I have read, a 40 breeder or 55g should do the trick. Will just be the mantis by itself, so no possible fights or anything. I really want a dog in a tank, truth be told. My fish are cool and interact with me, but having shrimpzilla as a pet would be awesome.
filtration will be a rubbermaid sump with turf scrubber(I have seen these guys eat and it is not pretty.)
Lighting is where I am stuck, I have read about somewhat dim lighting is preferable due to shellrot and not wanting to come out at all. What would be a prefered light setup?
