YJ true wrangler.
are you making a frag tank or somthing why would you want no substrate. I think its one of the coolest parts of owning a mantis mine makes paths all over the tank though the sand.

not all burrow in the sand. N. wennerae, G. smithii and a bunch of other species make burrows in the rockwork if they are presented with the proper rock. My G. smithii for example made its home in a porous piece of rock by widening an existing hole in the rock. Peacocks and many spearers on the other hand, do need sand. OP, what species were you looking at?
