    I'm getting a clean up crew as soon as the cycle finishes to keep most of that at bay.
    Supposedly you don't want those popping underwater.

    You could just get a 2.5 G desktop aquarium with built in LED and bubbler and get a couple chunks of Liverock from the fish shop and watch the algae and life develop would only cost like $50 all told.

    you dont. popping them will release spores into the water = more eyeballs....unless you really want more.

    Well, if you want that Mantis, you will need it in a submerged Kritter Keeper-They have the power to break aquarium walls, and will eat almost anything.

    Macroalgae, there are lots of neat looking species but only a few are beneficial to keep in a filter/refugium to suck nutrients out of the water.

    I couldn't subject it to living in a kritter keeper it would be a nice species tank with just live rock and a disposeable clean up crew.

    Well well speak of the devil... About a 1/3 to 1/2 of the current issue of CORAL the Reef & Marine Aquarium Magazine is all about the Mantis Shrimps / Stomatopods so I had to get it!

    Here's a link to the current cover and a copy in digital PDF to read - enjoy!
