Cool. Is it ever likely to venture out in the day? Or does it mostly hide away?

they typically hide a lot of the time. As suggested above, they will pair up with watchman gobies, an interesting little relationship.

how fast would the click be for someone to consider it a mantis shrimp. I hear clicks sometimes, but it'll be like 4-6 clicks. I heard it last night around 2 am and again today around 6 PM. it'll be like 4-6 clicks within 15-20 seconds and then silence

I know I've seen other threads on here about pistols killing other shrimp and fish.

Pistols can be a threat to other shrimp/ inverts..I would keep a close eye on your livestock. Maybe try to catch him and setup a species only tank and pair him with a goby ?
