    Hi, Mantis shrimp will prey on anything slow enough or small enough, so really they are best kept as a species only tank and fed shrimp or other frozen type food.

    depends on what kind of mantis you have.

    my mantis(peacock,smasher) is in a tank with a damsel and sinularia,zoa's and mushrooms.
    he kills the hermit crabs but leaves the snails alone.
