The "how many times does it click" method is, by no means, a relaiable way to identify a mantis or a pistol shrimp. I have a pistol shrimp in my tank and somethimes I hear one pop, other times I hear two, other times I hear several. Like I said, visual ID is the only way to know for sure.

in my case I have two and they seem to stay together so a lot of times I hear multiple clicks.

Have you found that any cleanup crew types bother either the pistol shrimp or gobie? I want the combo for my 6 gal, but I wish to have some additional cleanup crew and want to make sure they are all happy together... cause there is no where to go if they don't! 8O

Cleanup crew shouldn't be a problem unless you have an aggressive hermit or something...
