Herring bone and snapping

Ok, 2 questions. I recently was given a small portion of herringbone and I planted it in my 26 gallon marine. It has taken off and is growning along the sand and doing wonderful. Since I added it, all other algae problems have disappeared (I had a green hair algae problem, but I also reduced feeding to 1 time every 2 days rather than each day). I will keep it under control for now and hopefully if it keeps up the way it is I can sell some to my lfs. Anyone know if this is a sought after plant (or macroalgae)?
The other question is that almost every night when I turn off the lights in the aquarium, I hear a snapping sound. I look but I see nothing. Is it something alive or should I be checking my electrical system??

Thanks
Chris

I don't know much about macros so, can't help you there. The snapping you hear could be a pistol shrimp or a mantis. Both pretty common live rock hitchhikers.

Yes, they can be. I had a large mantis for two years before I ever knew it. Never heard any popping. He just happened to show himself after that bit of time.

Cool.
I posted in your other thread. I believe your macros are caluerpa. The herringbone being what I've seen called feather caluerpa. I don't know about how sought after they are but being a macro, I don't imagine you'll have much trouble getting rid of it.
