You can keep a 2" peacock mantis in a 15g aquarium. However, they don't stay this size for long, and the mantis will quickly outgrow this, both in terms of physical/"psychological" needs for bigger quarters, but also in terms of waste production/dilution. It is good practice to plan for the "eventual" needs of the specimen. If you start with a 30, you won't need to plan on "upgrading" in a year or two.
