Many species are fine with weekly 10% water changes, appropriate amount of LR, sand, and a powerhead for movement. For a 15 gallon check out P. ciliata. They are active spearer types (squilla mantises are inactive spearers that spend all their time in their burrow) and don't need alot of care. Also come in alot of colors and are found pretty much world wide so there is a pretty good chance you could get ahold of one. Larger spearers such as squillid need very deep sand beds (as deep as they are long)
