i bought both of these pistols from my lfs. they were both labeled as tiger pistols. but they look different so i just want to confirm that that is indeed what they are.

They are both tiger pistols. There are different varieties of tiger pistols, but they are still the same thing.

ya my hope was for the two pistols to pair up. but they dont seem to like the idea.

when i bought the goby he came paired with the pistol shrimp in the first pic. but i think the damsel chased him away from were the pistol had been digging and he ended up in the hole of the second one. lol
