The Japanese Pistol Shrimp (Alpheus bisincisus) is a beautifully colored shrimp found among the Indo-Pacific, between the Red Sea and Japan. They have a vibrant red body with white accent spots, along with possible yellow or orange hues. It is best kept in tanks with ample amounts of rock work, a sandy substrate, and and will scavenger for food as well as accept frozen aquarium foods. They are a beneficial tank member for their ability to eat uneaten food and sift the sand. The Pistol Shrimp will often use its large claw to dig caves in the sand to sleep in or retreat to. They are also known for forming symbiotic relationships with gobies - this can be an incredibly fun and rewarding relationship to watch in a home aquarium. The Gobies warn the Pistol Shrimp of predators and the Pistol Shrimp will share its food with the Gobies.
