    Possibly a pistol shrimp. Have a look after lights out with a red light.

    From what I've gathered they're very hardy and annoying too. Luckily I've never had one but I've know others who've taken one out only to find the noise still continues... Where's there's one... They could be more.

    Hehe.

    I've put one in my tank to "buddy" up with my watchman goby. They haven't found each other yet but it's only been a week. My shrimp only clicks occasionally and is doing a good job of turning over the sand bed. I think they are a pretty cool addition to the tank.

    I put one in with my yasha goby and it's great to watch them work together on their burrow. I find the nose they make interesting.
