Reef Tank Update – Light Maintenance & Mantis Shrimp Identification

Well it was a somewhat productive weekend… I changed out my BRS RO/DI filters, replaced a bad ballast and (noisy) 3″ fan in my Current Metal Halide fixture, fixed a melted LED wire and cleaned the coralline algae off my glass. I still need to clean the refugium… maybe today.

I also just had a guy on YouTube point out that mantis shrimp might not be a peacock but a Gonodactylaceus ternatensis (Google image search). I think I tend to agree with him as the mantis shrimp has lost a lot of the red it used to have. After I clean up the refuge glass I will try to get some better pictures.
