Tiger Pistol Shrimp (Alpheus bellulus)


The Tiger Pistol Shrimp (Alpheus bellulus), also known as the Snapping Shrimp or the Symbiotic Shrimp, is native to the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific. Tiger Pistol Shrimp get their name from being able to snap their claws with extreme speed, sending an airbubble and a shock wave towards their prey to hunt. These shrimp are a beautiful and helpful additional to a saltwater setup, as they will sift through your sandy substrate to hunt and create a interesting symbiotic relationship with any gobies.
