I'm not saying that they're not great and interesting fish, it's just that I already know about the more common fish and would like to know about some cool, easyish fish that are a little more unusual. but I do like clowns too! Don't get me wrong

That's really cool! But it's a pistol shrimp so won't it break my glass, or kill my cleaner shrimp?

It might kill your cleaner if it's big enough. One of the reasons you see certain fish all the time is because they are the easier ones to do. The more unusual the fish, the more difficult they are to maintain usually. Take the mandarins for example, they are extremely colorful with psychedelic patterns but their requirements are very demanding.

No the pistol doesn't have the capability to do that. Their sound cannon is used to stun prey, it's not very useful against inanimate objects.
