I was gettin no sleep because new 'colt' was shooting everything in sight.
I think he was setting up home because he's calmed down now and I only hear the odd one fire.
I'm loving it and can't wait till anemone crab arrives

Pistol shrimp or mantis shrimp? I don't think pistol shrimp are that aggressive. I haven't had any issues with my little guy.

i love and hate my pistol shrimp. I hate when he comes out so far that he moves all my sand everywhere as well as onto my corals and rearranging my corals

ever since i got a goby hes been coming far out, farther than I wanted. I hope by getting a clownfish it keeps him in check :/

My goby doesn't even know 'colt' is in there. It's frustrating to watch goby sitting all alone while colt kicks up the sand over the other side !!
Stupid fish!
