You want to be kind of specific with what kind you choose. Here's a list of all of the more common ones with lots of information about each.


If you have a 30 gallon or larger tank and don't mind having a low-light tank, the Peacock Mantis is beyond cool. But I'd forget about keeping corals with it. They don't tolerate the kind of light needed for corals. They get shell rot if the light is too bright.


Green Mantis (Gonodactylellus viridis) is a great choice and can be kept in a nano/pico tank with bright lighting and corals.


If it were me, I'd stick with smashers since spearers need a massively deep sand bed.
