I have a question Roy. I had no idea on the mantis i was buying pre hand. I accidently bought a Gonodactylaceus ternatensis. Ive had him for 3 months now. He's about 4-5 inches. He's molted once. He's only in a 20g tank with 48 watts.

The more reading i do one these guys the more im curious. Could i put more light on my tank? I mean these guys are found in shallow water and in sps corals? I plan on moving him to a 55g in the fall just want to know if a "brighter" light to keep sps would give him shell rot or do any harm.

Roy could you also tell me how big he can get? Im afraid hes going to out grow the 20g.
