I bought a peacock mantis from exotics last week. They also had some or other green mantis, but its a spear.

Only the one I took. But I think they get them in quite regularly. I have always seen them there.

I think we need to ask the mods if they give us a stomatopods section

I have a Aqua H20 AF-62 Nano tank that I would like to house the mantis in.

Firstly I need to get the filtration right and I have no idea when it comes to nanos.

The tank has a section where water is pumped in and releases via a spray bar. I am assuming some sort of floss/filter needs to be in this section.

Any suggestions welcomed

No floss war, maybe just some carbon and purigen and phos remover. Rely on the LR in the tank for fitration and just do reg water changes.
