    Hi, A good friend of mine is looking to buy a pet mantis shrimp after he has moved into his new flat but he's having a lot of trouble finding a place that sells one. I was hoping someone on here would be able to help? It would be preferable if it wasn't too far out from London. Thanks.

    Okay, so, LFS has two Mantis Shrimp, and I think one is a zebra mantis and the other is a peacock mantis. :help: - How much space do they need? (I know that you can only keep one per tank) - Can you put snails, or other fast fishes (like damsels or chromis) with it? - What's the ideal...

    Hi! So I created a 4'Wx1'9"Lx3'H cabinet for this aquarium. I'm looking at 40-50 gal tanks. I'm very new to the saltwater hobby and I know a mantis shrimp is probably the hardest thing to do for a beginner. But mantis shrimps remind my dad of his past days and loves them so I wanted one...
