Hi guys!

Can you experts please help me to identify my Mantis Shrimp?


I'm in doubt between Gonodactylus smithii, Gonodactylaceus glabrous and Gonodactylaceus ternatensis.




Here is him (or her) before acclimation:

and here is him (or her) some months ago, with his last owner:

Thanks for any help!

Looks like a G. Ternatensis to me. The red intersegmental bands and orange meral spots are the giveaway.
