Mantis shrimp?

I was wondering if I could get a mantis shrimp. Peacock to be exact. I have a 150g with 110# of LR sump refugium 220 skimmer. Blonde naso, honeycomb grouper, yellow tang, niger triggerfish, green bird wrasse, snowflake eel I think because I have not seen him and am not sure if my cuc took care of him, and porcupine puffer. Would a mantis kill my fish or the other way around? Could it brake 3/4in glass when full grown?????

My friend tried a mantis shrimp in a similar setup like yours, but after 3 days the puffer and trigger attacked and killed the mantis shrimp. What size shrimp were you planning to get?

I honestly think it will be attacked by the puffer and trigger either immediately or in the near future. Most mantis shrimps I have seen are solitary and in 20 gallon longs. Hope this helps!
