Guys,

Thanks for all the replies. I did forget to mention a few important things I completely forgot about. I've got a pistol shrimp (I'm positive I need to get him out, and I've also got about six bristle worms (two about 10 inches) in my tank. Should I have these removed too?

Don't get rid of the pistol. Just make sure your rock is firmly planted in the substrate. He'll just tunnel thru the sand. Get a shrimp goby for him to hang out with too.

So it's ok to have the pistol shrimp? I've heard of a goby and shrimp having some sort of connection, what exactly happens? Is he supposed to lure the pistol out of hiding??

The pistol is virtually blind. The 2 form a bond. Sleep in the same tunnel & feed together. They'll find each other in a tank. The shrimp is the lookout and will warn the shrimp of perceived danger. Interesting to watch.
