    after about a year of attempted trapping and hunting for this guy i finally trapped him. i have lost about 4 cleaner shrimp,ywg /pink fairy wrasse and numerous crabs and snails.this is one smart shrimp and he a was tough guy now is at my lfs. he even switched out a piece of shrimp out of the the trap and replaced it with a molting from a coral banded shrimp the night before i caught him. he was in my 125 gallon. i used the trap x terminator after a few mods that i did to it.

    I agree. Congrats. I got 2 out so far and still hear the clicking. My rock was from Florida and the pistols I had were green. Your shrimp is alot bigger. Hahahahahahaha oxymoron.

    I just bought one. Are they all bad? He was paired with my goby so i bought both. I had a clown fish die since it has been in the tank. It was a really little one. And an emerald crab died too. But he was like 6 months old and i had never added iodine which i heard you're suppose to do to help them shed. But do you you think he killed those two?

    Different kinds of pistols. Yours are good, hit chickens are to small to see and annoying. Your fine

    hope yours turns out to be the nice ones. the one i had just made burrows in the rocks,never came out to be seen,was very annoying and loud, and got blamed for everything that went missing or showed up as a empty shell.

    I know nothing ever good happens quickly in a reef tank, but yikes a year of hunting in a small glass box would drive me crazy!

    If you think the Hunt would drive you crazy you should hear the clicking and loss of livestock
