So I picked up an 8g Nuvo the other day for a screaming deal.  A lot smaller then what I am normally used to having for any type of setup, but I had a light bulb go off.  Species specific tank. 

So what I decided to do was make my little 8g Nuvo into a Manits Shrimp tank.  I will be putting some soft corals in there, but not going to go overboard.  I have always wanted a Mantis Shrimp.. such an intriguing animal.  

The shrimp has already been ordered and the tank is pretty much ready to go.  I will post some pictures later when I can get some extra time to do so.  

Can not wait for the Peacock Mantis to finally make his home in my desk tank.  OHHH yeah before I forget this is not the tank that I had planned on starting with that one is still coming as well :)

Until then.. Here is a link for some good laughs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5FEj9U-CJM

That's awesome...I want one too.


Not trying to be a downer, but you may need to start thinking about an upgrade eventually. The peacocks will need about a 30g tank.

Yeah, for now he is small.  He will have a larger home before to long.  :) 
There is still room for a bigger setup on my desk.
