Probably my Harlequin shrimp.

Utterly beautiful, elegant and purposeful. Here's a vid of it prizing an Asterina up off the rock (lights only just coming on so that's why the Xenia is shrunk)

I did have a yellow and white pistol shrimp. I found him climbing up the side of the sump as he must have been hiding in some rock I transferred there during the tank problems. I put him back in but, as his goby partner didn't make it, I don't know if he is managing to fend for himself and find food. I haven't seen any evidence of him lately.

here is my yellow watchman Goby and Pistol Shrimp. They're fascinating to watch and the pistol shrimp turns and aerates the sand. Plus he also creates burrows flee my firefish or at least let's my firefish settle in the burrows with him.

Hi. Hows he been? I had one in my old Nano and to say he was a miniature JCB would be an understatement. He constantly moved around my sand and small rocks 24/7 to the point where I ended up taking him out. I don't mind a bit of natural scaping but he took it to the extreme.
