i would only recommend them for a FOWLR and predators that are too small to eat a full grown adult but would eat the babies... mollies eat & crap (moderator edit) to much for a reef

the only danger of keeping a mantis with coral is that anything that isn't glued down will become part of its burrow, he already stole one of my richordia frags i got last week i've glued the nicer pieces i got down.. but i am out of glue

Edit: with that said there are some that make their homes in sps and any corals hit while hunting would definitely take some damage

it's not the corals that I am affraid of but your more your inverts and fish! You know that Mantis shrimp were seen ot actually crack an aquarium by hitting on the glass and people lost fingers to those beasts...

Go see on youtube...nice videos...this one for exemple:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHlnegJygis&feature=related

well on a screw up somewhere along the line i got another box of coral from fragalot today Very Happy i will post pics when most of them have opened up, keep in mind the screen on my camera is broken and there is no other way to see what you are taking a pic of so they wont be that great.... once everything opens up there might be a few pieces for sale, once i find out what everything is.

they are all zoas, would also be willing to frag my red purple spotted mushroom if anyone would be interested


as for mantis shrimp breaking a tank, I've done alot of research and found nothing but rumors. of course a full grow peacock would break a 10gallon but i don't think i have too much to worry about

i don't see how it would really be any more dangerous then a lionfish, especially since mine seem to be incredibly shy, but hopfully getting some new bulbs will change that

I have some of these shrooms in my tank and they don't seem to do all that well in direct lighting. Colour is so so much beter when they are well shaded. Is your experience with these similar Jack?
