Nicole the Dracula Goby feeding her pistol shrimp pair. I have yet to see the shrimp get their own food. Whenever I feed, Nicole ushers the shrimp back into their home, eats food and then feeds Jeremy and his partner. Very cute.

Such a good fish!!!! She’s so delicate about it. My goby just grabs The Largest peice of food he can find

Plot twist! Nicole is the queen of pistol shrimp! I was watching the tank yesterday, hoping to get a shot of Jeremy and suddenly, I saw movement behind Jeremy! It was the other pistol shrimp that I added when I presumed Jeremy dead. Normally, pistol shrimp kill each other and I had heard popping in the tank before, so I assumed that they met up and only one survived. Apparently, they were popping at something else and are actually sharing Nicole and a burrow! I’m very excited about this turn of events. Maybe the shrimp pair should be Wayhaught since the gobies did not pair back up. Photos of them are probably going to be like this because they are still adjusting to being in that spot, but I look forward to seeing more of them!

That is so cool!!!!!!

I’m acclimating this pistol shrimp for my sister and he’s gorgeous??? They bought him as a candy stripe but I think he looks like a tiger. I mean, Mario is beautiful, but I may be a tiny bit jealous

Here’s Mario for comparison, he’s a candy stripe. Tigers are usually sandy and brown so that guys definitely a beauty

Mario snapped at the emerald crab! You can hear his pistol claw make a snapping sound in the video. It sounds louder in person!

His snaps make a really sharp ‘CRACK’ now that the tank is bare bottom
