Pistol shrimp can be found burrowing under live rock. Orange and brown coloration with one noticeably larger claw.
These pistol shrimps are elusive and tend to set up burrows behind the aquascape under rock. We have not found them to be a threat to fish. Pistols will prey on hermits and snails. They also enjoy sinking pellets and left over fish food. Pistol shrimps can be found in pairs.
