This attractive Pistol Shrimp is generally colored with alternating red and white bands. Note the name Candy stripe.

 By far the interesting aspect of pistol shrimp are their ability to form a symbiotic relationship with some species of goby fish.

This is commonly seen in pistol shrimps belonging to the genus Alpheus such as the tiger pistol shrimp and Randall's pistol shrimp.

These beneficial shrimp will constantly move gravel making them excellent sand stirrers in the reef aquarium, as well as scavenging any uneaten food.

Pistol Shrimp have a symbiotic relationship with gobies . The goby, with better eyesight, warns the shrimp of predators. The shrimp share its food with the goby.

Pistol Shrimp thrive in environments with sand, rock caves, and areas of lower light. They will hang out in the lower portion of the tank, near rocks or ledges to keep out of the direct light. If in pairs, one will often stand guard at the burrow while the other is inside.

Pistol Shrimp will accept any meaty freeze-dried and frozen foods and bottom feeder tablets.
