Pistol shrimp


Recommended Posts

I'd say probably not. If they burrowed under a rock that was only supported by sand then the answer could be yes, but you would probably see a shift in your rock work.

Pistols are primarily nocturnal, the easiest way to tell is to wait for lights out and then listen for it "hunting". If it's alive and hunting food then you'll hear a distinct popping sound like someone snapping their fingers.

I would suspect it is more likely that he is busy somewhere else than having caused a cave in.

Mine has been in my tank about a year and he has probably moved 60% or more of the substrate over that time.

Busy as a beaver pistol shrimp!
