yeah you can not have him in your tank with any other anything in it pretty much. he will eat whatever he can get a hold of. the place where i get my fish supplies from have about 10 of these guys there cool to have in the tank but any living fish up to about 8 inches will prob. get eaten

A friend of mine had one for the longest time and kept it in an acrylic tank
for fear of it breaking a glass tank. He actually used an old acrylic Nevada lottery ticket counter display that he modded with bulkheads and layed it on its back...lol
I think the mantis is cool and have tossed around the idea of getting one as well, I was given a spare nevada case by my buddy for just this purpose.
