    Ok so he went in the tank on Wednesday evening. He practically jump out of the bag into the tank and swam straight into one of the tiger pistol shrimp's burrows. It's now Sunday and he is nowhere to be found. The burrow that he was in is now sealed up and there has been no sign of him despite...

    Well my little blue eyed Kole tang is missing and I've searched everywhere, there's not a single crevice or cranny that he could be in as far as I can see. Now I'm worried as he seems to like to swim around the crevice that my watchman Goby and tiger pistol shrimp occupy. Is it possible the...

    http://youtu.be/jK7jA1K9Ov0 I Haven't seen these guys in about 4 months. I was super excited to see them in action yesterday. I can't believe how big the pistol shrimp has gotten. The YWG was one of my first fish last January. I got the pistol shrimp about March and he was about an inch...

    I have a tiger shrimp that needs a friend. My first yellow watchman goby paired up nice with him, but eventually perished. I bought another YWG that I think was just a sick fish, because he only lasted a couple of weeks. This second YWG never really paired up with my pistol and always seemed...

    Well as the title says, I picked up an very small tiger pistol shrimp last night and during the transfer into the tank his larger claw seems to have broken off. He seems to be doing fine without it. Will this grow back and if so how long am I looking at? thanks

    I had purchased a yellow watchman and randalls pistol at the same time and they paired right up. 2 weeks later I had a nitrate spike in the nano and it killed the pistol. I replaced him recently with a red pistol. I was hoping they would pair up, but instead, the pistol attacked him, chopped...

    My biggest concern are the tangs. Yes? No? Maybe? I see a lot of people do it. However, a 90 gallon is still just a 4 foot tank. I would love to have a blue tang and Powder Blue Tang. I have: 1 Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) 3 Green Chromis (Chromis viridis) 1 Six Line Wrasse...

    this weekend I picked up my LR from www.tampabaysaltwater.com/. I know I have a shrimp hitchhiker because I can hear his snap but I'm not sure if its a pistol or mantis. I have had a pistol shrimp before and it sounds a lot like that and it is very faint. I thought that a mantis would be very...

    I have a 90g with a Tiger pistol (2in) that has taken home to one end. My YWG shows no intrest in this shrimp. My real question is that my LFS has a Red pistol shrimp and I was wondering if I could get away with putting it in the 90g also? Would they get along, or fight to the death...

    Ive been doing some research :goldfish: :read: on Pistol shrimp, and am planning to purchase one. I have lots of LR work and crevices, but i do not have sand (gravel). I know they prefer sand to dig in, but do you think it will be ok with the gravel? Also do you know any long lived/better to...

    Well I got a 4 gallon Finnex nano tank for Father's Day. It came with a HOB filter ~30GPH, and 18W 50/50 PC bulb. It's at my office at work so I have something to look at during the day. I filled up with salt water this morning and got everything wired. There's also a 25 watt heater in...
