Tiger Pistol Shrimp

Pistol tiger shrimp will scavenge with goby tankmates which makes for an interesting scene when one keeps a look out for the other as they gather food. These shrimp are generally peaceful but they will defend their little territory. Like most shrimp, the tiger pistol shrimp will live longer with periodic additions of mineral supplements.
