    So for the past few weeks i've been hearing a clicking sound from my tank. I did some reading got a basic idea, tried to look at night when time is available but haven't really seen much. Tonight i get home to find a molted shell of what looks exactly like this.

    That came up when i googled pistol shrimp.

    My question is, what next?

    Get yourself a prawn goby and hopefully they will pair. It's not a mantis shrimp, so no real risk. It's quite awesome watching it paired with a goby..

    can you ascertain which rock the clicking is coming from? If so it may be worth your while to sump it before it causes too much harm, don't forget to feed it once it is there.
