Stocking suggestions.....


Premium Member
My mantis shrimp, a n. wennerae, is getting a new home, I'm going to set up a caribbean biotope in a ten gallon.

Already have two flower anemones, various zooanthids , and one large turbo snail. I'd like to add one or two fish that won't eat or be eaten by a 2.5" mantis.

Any suggestions ?

Your mantis is about twice as large as my G. smithii is currently but he is able to co-exist nicely with an Emblemaria pandionis and a (never seen, but still active at night rearranging/hunting) Belonepterygion fasciolatum.

Course once Tim doubles or triples in size I'm not certain I'll leave them in there with him... ;)
