Looking to add a refugium to my 55 g and 30 g reef set up and plumb all in together.

Recently got two 14 g acrylic tanks. I won't need both for chaeto so would the second make a good home for a mantis ?

Any issue with having shared water with the reef tanks for either the mantis or the other tank inhabitants, or can they all bath together providing they are in their seperate tanks.

As for lighting would reef lighting in the room shed from the tanks be too much for a mantis if it was indirect?

Would rather know if it's a non-starter before I look into getting an animal.

Forgot to mention my system is in the basement with no natural light in the room.
