    Hi

    I am looking for a small to medium sized pistol shrimp. The specific specie is not important.

    I will collect in or near Cape Town.

    I want to pair one up with one of the shrimp gobies, it is an amazing interaction to watch.

    The are also not particular agressive and defend their borrow more than hunt (as oppose to a manta shrimp). Even suggestions that the goby feed/bring food to the shrimp.

    Na, prefer the Cape Town ones, apparently the Jhb ones mugs the fish! Shows you how it goes, put a very smal (1cm), very expensive candy cane one into my tank 6 months ago, never seen or heard it again.
