LOL That's exactly what my pink spotted watchman does. He never really leaves his burrow and it's been a few wekks.

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

I place some small pieces of krill near a borrow entrance or the pistol to snatch. He's quick once he smells it

Funny you said that I was going to ask if and what people feed their pistol shrimps. I always taget some brine shrimp near the borrow of my yellow watchman goby/ pistol shrimp but never see the shrimp eat. Had the shrimp over 2 months now so he's gotta be living on something lol. ?

My Yellow Prawn Gobie does the same thing but he does switch burrows throughout the day. I have a Sleeper Banded Goby and a Diamond watchman Goby Share'n the tank with the little guy so he stays on the bottom and tries out all the burrows the diamond made but he always goes back to his when he grabs some food. The sleeper stays in the middle level and picks off the rocks all day.

I like to see my shrimp. This allows me to give him a treat and see him. They are cool, but so reclusive

Me too I have a blood red fire shrimp that only comes out of hide'n when i feed everyone. He is fun to watch but only comes out when he wants to. Same goes for my two electric orange hermit crabs.

What do you feed your pistol shrimp? as I said earlier I try feeding brine shrimp but same as your is reclusive so as soon as I put the long pipette in to target feed him and the YWG he just bolts inside the borrow and when he come out brine is either already been eaten by others or is swept away by current.
