    Wow I have been missing for soooo long! I really need to get reacquainted with the forum again. I think it has been since April that I have been here. Work and life in general has been so crazy and busy for me. A good and wonderful crazy and busy, but still crazy none the less. So a great big...

    Hey everyone, Has anyone had success ordering a paired pistol/goby (i guess of any kind) from BlueZoo? I ordered a YWG and Tiger pistol pair and when it arrived, the YWG was tiny (looks like a baby, probably less than an inch), far smaller than the pistol. They came in the same bag, I...

    Last night I picked up a purple firefish, hi fin goby and pistol shrimp. This is in addition to my foxface, 2 blue green chromis, yellow watchman goby, cleaner shrimp, and emerald crab. So the Foxface went after the pistol when I added him and the pistol instantly found a hole to hide in. I was...

    Last night I probably heard my pistol shrimp snap about 100 times. Now since it was probably 12 at night, I didn't bother to check as I suspected he was snapping at nothing which he sometimes does. (Quite hilarious) But when I awoke this morning, he was missing his pistol claw, and the smaller...

    I've done a lot of research ever since I got my pistol shrimp but haven't been able to figure this one out. With all the research i have done, all the pistol shrimps I've observed have dug their burrows by using their claws, almost like a shovel. I have never seen what my pistol shrimp does...
  6. The THINK Tank
    I have a 37 gallon tank and have a few different ideas for fish but I'm unsure they're compatable together. First, yellow watchmen goby and pistol shrimp. Can they have other tank mates also or are they better off alone? Or Second, Red fin waspish or dwarf lionfish? Are there any other...

    I recently rehomed a Caribbean pistol shrimp from my 72gal to my BC 29 when i upgraded the 72 to a 120. But today i was doing a water change in my BC, minding my own business, syphoning the sand out and what not, when i put my hand underneath the main cavern part of my rockscape when i heard a...

    Hello. I'm a new member here and have some questions about my tank. First off I'm aware that I have to wait with my tank. Its roughly 3 - 4 Days old and I just want to know about what I can put in it. So currently i have 2 Ocellaris Clowns. And I really want a Rose anemone. But I'm unsure if...

    I picked up a pistol shrimp from one LFS and than a yellow watchman from another store. Acclimated them very carefully and introduced them at the same time but they did there own thing. Each made there own homes on different ends of the tank. My question is what is the likelyhood that they will...

    I have a 38 gallon reef with 40 pounds of sand with a yellow watchman goby and cleaner shrimp. I was wondering if I could add pistol shrimp of some kind and not have to worry about constant fighting.The cleaner shrimp is always at the top of the glass on one of my powerheads and at night he goes...

    Hi all Hope I'm posting in the right section. I'm after getting a goby shrimp pairing but I have a couple of questions. What parings do you all have? 1) would a pistol shrimp be okay with my current fire and clearer shrimps? 2) would a pistol make a huge sandstorm all day? Would you...

    I have a pistol shrimp that has been turning upside down for a few days now. Every time i flip him upright, he ends up turning upside down again. I have him in a transfer container. it was with a yasha hase goby but i separated the two because i thought the yasha was bothering it. Its...

    I have a Coral banded shrimp and this morning I noticed on of his arms are missing. I think he was fighting with my pistol shrimp. Will it regrow after a few molts? Should I get rid of the pistol shrimp?

    Well, I decided to try and put a goby & pistol shrimp combo in my 72 reef tank. Other fish include, 2 false percs, 2 blue/green chromis, and what I believe to be a Psudochromis aldabraensis (perhaps commonly called a 'neon dottyback'). The shrimp and goby seemed to become buddies pretty much...

    About 2 months ago I brought home a yellow Watchman Goby, and a pistol shrimp. They quickly moved in, and the shrimp made a tunnel system in a hurry. The goby would always hang out looking out one of the entrances. He would come out to get food when I feed the fish, and I always made sure he...

    I am cycling my new tank and have recently added the live rock so i haven't added any livestock yet however occasionally i can hear a clicking noise usually 2 or 3 clicks at a time then it goes quiet for a while. I just wondered if this rate of clicking indicates a mantis or pistol shrimp and...
