Tiger Pistol Shrimp


Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.

Tiger Pistol Shrimp

The name Pistol Shrimp derives from the clicking noise they make with their left modified pincher. They make this noise to help frighten away predators as well as helping to stun small pray. They are often found living with a small goby from the Amblyeleotris and Stonogobiops genera like the Randall's Goby. As with other marine shrimp, this species is highly sensitive to high nitrates as well as copper, and should have pristine water quality. Drip acclimation is highly recommended.
