Very nice! Love the mini lobster

Thank you! that's is actually a pistol shrimp :)

Very nice looks.
Looks like a Bullseye Pistol, any aggression towards the Cleaner Shrimp?

Thank you! and no aggression at all. He pretty much keeps to himself. I had a yellow watchmen goby but he had a mishap. He went missing for a few days which isn't unusual but Somehow he got into by back chamber and when I woke up one morning I see this thing sticking out of my return nozzle. Poor guy..

He is a Japanese pistol shrimp- The Japanese Pistol Shrimp may also be called the Red Pistol Shrimp, and originates from Sri Lanka. Their body is bright red in coloration, and is marked with several white spots. The base of the tail and the claws are also banded in white. These beneficial shrimp will constantly move gravel making them excellent sand stirrers in the reef aquarium, as well as scavenging any uneaten food.
The sound it makes comes from an appendage on the pincher which moves when the pincher is opened or closed and water is ejected. The Pistol Shrimp can be easily confused with Mantis Shrimp if judged by sound only. Unlike the Mantis Shrimp, it is not harmful and will not pose any threat in the tank, with the possible exception of very small shrimp. They may form a symbiotic relationship with a shrimp goby if they are compatible.

Eek, I thought my Watchman had it bad. Thirty minutes after introducing him into the tank he somehow got himself into the the overflow/skimmer box; he spun in there a good 5-10 minutes before I found him.

My poor guy had the worst death. I felt so bad. I loved that little frown faced yellow guy. Glad your little guy made it :)
