Anyone know of any shops that have peacock mantis in stock usually? LFS here has a plain brown one, cool, but not peacock cool.

It's not a commonly stocked item like a clownfish or firefish. However, they can be special ordered by most shops.

yes, it's not a requirement for keeping mantis....It's just Schackmel's preference.
