    Ya straight from tmc, for the time being yes may put a clown in there, it's a gamble with any mantis my last 1 was in a tank with gobys, clowns, shrimps, everything corals never hurt anything, used to run around all day long. Just hoping he the same it's hit and miss

    Just made him a little den, I can hear him banging away already, the tank only 3 weeks old. So new lights are coming, decent corals and some decent live rock, gonna leave it now for a few weeks to settle, the water looks murky because Iv just put my hands in there
