Thanks. It hasn't changed much at all since this shot from a few weeks ago. If you want to use an insect I recommend mantises as a good choice. P. paradoxica are especially nice little subjects for a setup like this.

hydrophyte Here's yet another view a bit closer of the ghost. I need to take some time and get some very good shots of this bug. I might put together a white box setup.

Hey thanks so much.

These mantids get small B. dubia roach nymphs.

hydrophyte Here's that lone adult P. paradoxica.

hydrophyte I have an adult ghost in here now. The largest individual molted one last time and now it's almost three times bigger than its siblings. I don't know why the others are so far behind(??). I need to move them out of this enclosure before they get eaten by the big one.

hydrophyte Thanks! I am pretty happy with how this has grown in.

The mantis is pretty easy to find. It doesn't move much at all and it's pretty big now.

150EH Your setup looks great and the photos are perfect, nice light. If I had the mantis I'd need a mini tracking device or I would spend half a day looking for them each day, I mean you showing me the photo with a description and it still took me a minute to see the mantis.
