pair of Red Looking Lobster/shrimp type thing

I was looking into the tank today and noticed 2 long Antenas sticking out from under my LR along with a set of red pinchers about a sec or 2 later I say another set.. Both in the same area.. I was unable to get a picture but it seems as though this is a pair of them.. The LR that it must have came on it the Liverocks Aquacultured LR.. Can anyone maybe tell me what these might be.. The seem to be RED..


TIA,
James

WEll I must say that whatever it is It likes krill and is extremely quick.. I decided to try a trick them to come out with some krill and well they caught it on the way by and grabbed it so quick that I was unable to get a look at it but that It was indeed a Reddish Orange color.. There are at least 2 of these in there..

Please Help Me...

Probably some sort of hitchiker shrimp, without a pic there is no real way to know.

They actually look like a coral shrimp of some sort.. REally cool and fast creatures they are.... The right claw is notably larger than the left ones and both have extremely large antenas..

I try to snap a picture and they are gone before the camera can get them.. I will try and see if I can get a picture..

So this pair that I have Is a good hithiker.. I would say that they are at least 2-3" ea I would think that it was almost impossible to see these when i got the LR but I guess they hide real well

Actually I said they were cool, not good I don't think they are either good or bad, they just are.

Am I going to have an Issue with adding a Mandrin tomorrow since the mandrin is a bottom feeder.. Will this shrimp bother it at all do ya think?

Not because of the shrimp, but because the tank is too small and new to support a mandarin.

I think pistol shrimp are the ones that are known to develop symbiotic relationships with gobys, no?
