I was looking at coral banded shrimp, I was thinking he can stand up to the pistol. But I've heard and read that you can only keep one unless they are a mated pair?

Anyone know?

Thanks!!

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

Cbs will fight to the death unless they are a mated pair. Mine tried to kill fish also, there are some horror stories out there about CBS.

How does that trick work anyways, I've never really understood it. lol
I will try to explain but you might want to check out YouTube for aquarium bottle trap.
For the pistol shrimp take a coke or pepsi bottle and cut out the whole piece where the bottle starts to slope to the cap.Take the cap off.Put a small hole near the cut open part of the bottle and tie some fish line to it in order to pull it up later.get a piece of rock and rubber band some bait to it and place in the bottle.Reverse the part of the bottle you cut off and push it in the other part.Slowly lower the bottle to the bottom near where the shrimp stays.The idea is the shrimp will go in the small cap part to get the bait but will have trouble finding it's way back out or you can pull the bottle up quickly if you see it go in.


Regarding coral banded shrimp I would go for the Golden banded shrimp,it is peaceful.I have one in my 3 gallon Pico with two sexy shrimp with no problems.

Also in IMO the skunk is the best cleaner shrimp,Fire shrimp are pretty but everything I read says they are not good for corals or clam mantles.

Thanks rick. I think I can kinda picture it in my head. i may look into the golden banded for my pico, that would be a great idea.

I also heard the same about the fire shrimp. They are really awesome looking but I think they were like $30 each last time I looked. Too much for my blood on a shrimp no less...lol

The bottle trick is a very wise idea it works along the same lines as a crab pod they use for catching crab in the wild
