I would double check at night with a flash light just to make sure you don't have a Mantis in there.... There is a lot of creepy stuff that happens at night in those Tanks....lol...

I would think if your fish and inverts are all alive and kicking, that it's NOT a mantis. Check your inverts...keep a count. If some are dying off or you see empty shells, you might have a mantis.
It seems odd that it started when you got the shrimp. I am betting it's the shrimp making a ruckus.

I invite you to try it some time. I've actually had, for the most part, really good experiences with online retailers. Of course, un the UK, it may be a little different.

Well there's always that worry for me about the condition the fish is in when it arrives. You can see the fish in a shop so know how healthy it is. Plus, I worry too about how the fish is transported. I guess it's worth a try if you know a few people that have received good species from a certain place and recommend them.

I reread your post and you say that the tapping sound is mainly at night. This means that you can hear it during the day also. Your PH or other pump may have picked up a pebble and that is making that tapping sound that you are hearing...Just a thought...

Can't be as I turned everything electrical off while I was hearing it as I thought it was an electrical spark, but then it carried on.

It has to be this little shrimp..... I hope :p I heard a couple taps last night straight after I turned the lights off, then that was it (until I fell asleep of course lol). Maybe its a warning/panic sound from the shrimp because of the light change in the tank?
