I went over a year before I even saw my pistol shrimp. I would just see sand flying out from under my rockwork and hear a popping sound when the room as quite. Some food landed near one of his holes and I saw him dash out and pull it into his home. That's the last I saw of him. I still see the sand being dug out from under the rocks so I know he still is there.

Me too, he would get "upset" when I cleaned and semi-buried on of his holes!

I loved my pistol, but if you want a critter that you can see, I wouldn't suggest one. If you get a pistol/goby combo, you may see him a little more. They are pretty much blind and use the goby for moving around and he protects the goby....
