This stomatopod made some fancy renovations

I was just checking on my stomatopods today and noticed this guy had added some decorations to his refuge. The red tape is his ID number and usually the floats around the tank. However it seems as though he’s attached it to one end of his refuge.  A lot of the shrimp seem to like having one end blocked off, presumably so it’s easier to defend their refuge from other organisms.  Usually they just add rocks to one end but this shrimp has gone fancy!
