Tiger Pistol Shrimp

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.
