I love my Tiger pistol shrimp and watchman goby pair. They dig dens right in front of the tank so I can always see them. the watchman is very yellow still with bright blue spots on his body. IMO if I set up a 10g tank and kept only one thing in it it would be a Watchman Tiger pistol pair. In fact I am converting my 25g Nano into a 75g Bare bottom and am thinking about doing a 5.5g Nano just for them beings they need sand.

Yes they do. But can be loud but not loud enough to hurt anything.

Yes it is very loud. I have been woken up at night because of my tiger pistol snappin away. I cant say that it is non agressive though. Took a leg off my peppermint shrimp.

Ive had mine about 4 months. Doing great, got a couple of camel shrimp and the watchman goby has become their protector.
