Tank sizes are in liters.

Color change with lighting and background color and pattern is common in many stomatopods - particularly gonodactyloids. It is most dramatic in a few species that occur over a wide depth range from the intertidal to > 30 m. Probably the most dramatic change in color and pattern is in Pseudosquilla ciliata, but Neogonodactylus wennerae and Gonodactylellus affinis also show dramatic shifts.
