I dont know were he would have come from (LR?) but everynight I can hear, pop, pop, pop, I think he/she is still young cause it isnt like POP but It is deffenitly getting annoying! and I cant find him ANYWERE! so...any ideas? maybe get him a yellow watchman?

I'd make sure it is a pistol shrimp first. The yellow watchman goby can pair up with a pistol.

i believe they sound different from mantis shrimp, never heard either.

yeah, its a good idea to make sure its a pistol shrimp, it would suck if you bought a goby and the next morning you see a mantis shrimp finishing him up
