Hi I was wondering if there is such a thing as a zebra pistol shrimp, I tried to google it online but I did not find anything.

Can someone confirm if thats what this is?

Can somebody confirm this, because I have seen 2 of these at two different LFS labeled as Zebra pistol shrimp.

But more importantly, Can somebody confirm if these will host with a watchman goby? That is why I bought him but if that is not the case I want to return him.

i would guess they just called them zebra instead of tiger to make them seem rare

mmm okay thanks for the help. I just don't want to risk my goby being eaten. Im pretty sure this is a zebra shrimp though just because I saw them at 2 different LFS and their pattern is different from tiger shrimp but I would appreciate a confirmation on this

I'll wait until I get off work today for somebody to confirm this, it's gonna be a hassle to remove him I bet x__x...

Also, can anybody tell me if this zebra pistol shrimp thing even exists? (as a species) I've tried to search engine it but I have not received strong evidence that it is not just a common misnamed thing between tiger shrimp and zebra shrimp.

Does anybody have one of these (zebra shrimp)? Have they co-existed and paired with your goby? :3 I have a watchman goby, thank you everyone and anyone
