Default Moss mantis (Haania vitalisi) L3 for sale

I recieved a import of moss mantis, have been experimenting with the care and now have produced offspring. They are a communal species that do not bother eachother when fed well. Id like to introduce them into culture in the UK, so they do not vanish.

Interesting.
Can I suggest you write a thread in the Spiders and Inverts section detailing their care, especially in a communal setting.

I'll put it on my to do list

for a quick summary version for those who want to know before i get around to it:
Temp: 23C
Humidity: spikes in humidity around 70-80% every day or so. I allow it to partially dry inbetween.
Feed: start off on springtails and graduate to fruit fly, may take bean wheavels or firebrats but ive not tried.

Yes, they are a small species but look really cool in a tiny planted set up! especially in a group, something thats rare in mantids
