Customer Reviews
Joanne of Richmond VA
Green Pistol Shrimp
This little guy was very active and vigorous when he arrived. The shrimp settled in very quickly and is doing a great job keeping the substrate turned over with his burrowing activity.
Sally of Oklahoma City, Ok
Green Pistol Shrimp
So surprised by his size, 2-21/2 inches long! He has been busy the moment he entered our tank. Purchased a yellow Watchman Goby at the same time and the two found each other quickly.
Agnes/Nate of South Carolina
Prettier than this picture shows.
While not as striking as the Randall's shrimp. This one is pretty in its own right. Has a lot of personality. My Nassarius snails keep going in his lair to clean and he throws them out. Same with any cope pods that happen into his lair. Lively as soon as we let him out of the bag.
