I know critter keepers have difficulty with temperature regulation, so I had an idea. So I have a 20 gallon long and I though what if I put a Uth on it with a thermostat, and the mantids in kritter keepers within the 20 gallon. I wanted to see if it was safe or not but I can’t find answers online

I’ve often thought about doing a variation of this idea. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. As long as you set it up, test for accurate temps and make adjustments, it should be fine. 

Sounds great to me! I've done this before, except I used an old cooler instead of a tank.

I’m sort of a beginner so I’m thinking spiny flower mantises or ghost Mantises 

For spinys and ghosts, an incubator setup isn't needed as they are fine at any temperature that you are generally comfortable at.

That seems a bit too much imo, I would save that setup for idolomantis or some rare species.
