Here is my Mantis that lives in the sump of my 120G FOWLR. He is very shy and likes to stay in his hole. Comes out mostly to take food from the feeding tongs.

Very cool, how long have you had her? Looks like there is plenty of macroalgae in that sump. That should be a nice clean environment for a Peacock. Just give her some time and maybe she'll warm up to you and come out more

I have had him for 6 months. With plenty of small rocks and gravel he has built a home with a couple of openings. Likes to be fed from a set of tongs. Shrimp, krill, black worms, sometimes I throw a small clam from the grocery store in there and after a couple of days fine the broken shell and the meaty parts gone.
