    Looking good, careful that is some dangerous algae there. Is that in your mantis tank ?

    If so - no prob, let it take over.

    It grows like weed and start taking over the reef not allowing corals to grow.

    Some of these species are now banned in the States because of the damage they have done to their natural reefs.

    Just keep an eye on it and prune.
