Nope. Likely a pistol shrimp or a mantis shrimp. Any new rocks added recently?

I bought a pistol shrimp and a gobie, I have not seen the pistol shrimp since I put him in my tank. I did not know if he was still around. I guess the "click" is coming from him. No new rocks.

Yup, probably the pistol shrimp. They like to make a racket.

I agree that it`s not an emerald crab. Had some for yrs and never heard anything out of them.

I am new to this hobby. From the videos I have seen, mantis shrimp are bad news. Although I am fascinated by them. I just hope that is one hitchhiker I do not pick up
