The Bullseye Blue Spot Pistol Shrimp is a member of the Pistol Shrimp family that will often associate with a sand dwelling Goby to form a symbiotic relationship. The Goby spots predators and the Bullseye Blue Spot Pistol Shrimp captures most of the food. This shrimp will accept most meaty foods and some of the bottom feeder tablets. Be sure to provide a sandy base at least 2" deep to make this shrimp feel at home. The pistol name comes from the loud, sharp "pop" it can make with its pincher.
