What kinf of shrimp shell does this look like?
I have a cleaner but he does not have claws like this?

nice. I have never seen him.
Maybe I should get him a goby.
I had a goldenhead that just passed away. What kind of goby pairs with these?

Pistol shrimps are great. Very fun to watch. I have a yellow watchman goby that has paired with my pistol. Great realationship!

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
