Caught the Killer ! What the hell is this?

I Re-did my WHOLE tank... All 90 pounds of rock were removed and 75% of it RO dipped and this came out of THE last rock !
What is he?

Looks like a small golden coral banded shrimp, I'm probably wrong, but that is the first thing that come to mind.

Are you sure that killed something? looks like a normal shrimp with claws. If its still alive trow it into a Species tank like people do with mantis shrimp. He looks pretty cool.

Not sure I would have been so quick with the death sentence. Looks like a cool shrimp. IMO most shrimp are harmless, beneficial additions to a reef. Esp. rare ones like this.
Mantis shrimp are an exception and aren't really shrimp anyway.
Maybe a QT tank would be a good place to put questionable creatures pending thier dispostion. Might be able to make some $$ from fellow members looking for odd creatures. I think I would have paid money for that guy.

I'm intrigued by this statement, I've never heard it before, any links for this? If they aren't shrimp...what are they?
