IS there such things as a "ghost" shrimp ?

I got one ! What does he eat? He's huge... almost like a mini lobster, I'd say almost 3 inches. He can be a lobster buy doesn't have big claws.. I can't get a pic because he only comes out at night. I'm making some moonlights soon so maybe I can get a pic that way !

This guy makes clicking sounds like a pistol shrimp. And he's getting some color in him now too. I just with that he'd come out during the daylight hours !
