My Little Garden: Peacock & Macroalgae
Frank and Jennifer Sronce own several different mantis shrimps, including some small gonodactylids and a couple of large Odontodactylus scyllarus Peacocks.
This gorgeous 13 cm Peacock is in a 10 gallon acrylic tank (shown on the right).
The other large, 16 cm female Peacock mantis shrimp lives in a 20 gallon tank, containing an aragonite substrate, a Skilter 250 and an Aquaclear 200. A 15" ordinary flourescent and an 18" Reef Sun 50/50 provide illumination.
Definitely visit their web site to see more pics of their other mantis shrimps!
