I am almost sure that it is the pistol shrimp because the can fire a jet of bubbles from there large claw that is about the temperature of the sun sunning their natural prey of other shrimp. As other shrimp are there natural prey. So if you took the pistol shrimp out I would say go right a head.

I got the pistol shrimp for my goby, thought maybe they would work on a relationship but they havent. :-( I don't think I could get the pistol out if I tried, I have about 250lbs of rock in the tank adn he is literally on the bottom of it all. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

+1 for the pistol shrimp. My pistol shrimp has done the same thing to my tank. Had 3 peppermint shrimp, now I have none.

hmm maybe it is time for the pistol to be removed. I've just been dreading it. I would really like to have more shrimp, I'd actually like them more than the pistol. LOL

is there any easy or not really difficult way to get a pistol out? Other than breaking down my entire tank? Would a fish trap work or will I just catch my fish? lol

Mantis Shrimp Trap

Here is an article I found on Google about a trap which I believe will work for a Pistol Shrimp.
