Bullseye pistol shrimp

Anyone every kept these? Are they aggressive? I've got a lot of inverts such as pom pom crabs, strawberry crabs, emerald crabs, electric blue hermit, and three camel shrimp. Would the shrimp pose a threat to any of these inverts? The tank is 55 gallons.

No, these guys are quite peaceful. Though I'm not sure why one would get one as they don't form a bond with any gobies.

To be honest I don't care all that much about it bonding with a goby. Some people have had them pair with watchman gobys. I'm planning on getting an ora watchman at some point even if they don't pair.

My LFS had various shrimp in the same tank with a pair of these and thought nothing of it.

Keyword=HAD

Wouldn't recommend it.

So the pistol would make a meal out of my golden coral banded shrimp and my camels?

Pistols hunt other shrimp naturally so I'd say it's just a matter of time
