Notes: This unique shrimp, along with other pistol shrimp, have a specialized claw that creates a loud clicking noise when it is open or closed. You can hear this noise from outside the aquarium if you listen closely. The Pistol Shrimp uses this claw to ward off predators and knock over potential prey.
Pistol Shrimp will often share a burrow with Shrimp Gobies from the genera Stonogobiops or Amblyeleotris. Sutiable Shrimp Gobies include: Yasha Goby, Randall's Goby, Yellow Watchman Goby, and Hi Fin Red Banded Goby.
Pistol Shrimp will feed on scraps of meaty foods.
