Cleaner shrimp question


New Member
Do the skunk striped cleaner shrimp make loud clicking sound? I keep hearing random clicks and pops in my tank and can't trace it back to anything??

I heard a loud clicking sound in my tank, and I found a big margarita snail that was snapping it's shell against the glass to upright itself. I was worried it was an electronic gizmo making the sound...whew.

There's a little green Pistol Shrimp, I forget the species name, that lives in rocks. It will rarely, if ever, leave its rock so you wouldn't see it unless you cracked open the rock.

Pistol Shrimp or mantis shrimp can both be hitchhikers on live rock. You may never see them. I have a pistol shrimp in a small tank, and it dug a tunnel to live in in the substrate. The only reason I know it is there is because I can see the tunnel along the edge of the tank. Kinda like an ant farm.
