Liverock with rock anemone & a Pistol shrimp. *pictures*

Postby elise on Tue Jan 29, 2008 7:47 am

I originally wanted to take down my 75g and start a smaller tank to have my pistol shrimp and rock anemone live in.. But i just cannot afford it anymore.
The pistol shrimp and rock anemone came on a liverock order from liverocks.com back in 2004.
Though at first i thought the rock anemone was aiptasia, im glad i didnt juice him because this thing is awesome :)
Now maybe i am wrong, and it is aiptasia, but it hasnt spread for 3 years so i highly doubt it.
it's so much fun to watch it eat..
I snapped some pictures of it about a week ago in my almost bare 75g tank. However, the pistol shrimp didnt want his picture taken. but he is sandy brown in color with blue stripes on his back .

The piece of live rock the anemone lives on has tons of color too:)

i'm thinkin $15 for the shrimp
and $15 for the nice rock and anemone

i'll also have the 75g oceanic tank with some coraline and $300 tall oceanic stand forsale in near future. not sure what to sell it for yet.

let me know if you are interested!
also, feel free to let me know if im tryin to sell aiptasia! lol

thanks

8) it realy does look like a big aptasia. even if it is! its still pretty if you dont look at it as a pest

It does look like aptasia, I have however heard of a strain of aptasia that dosnt spread in pest like proportions like most. Still, its a neat looking nem.

I am pretty sure its at least Aiptasia sp. though it certainly seems like its a different species than what we usually deal with.

Nothing wrong with Aiptasia though, my first reef back in 1988 was full of it and I was just psyched that something had grown and reproduced in the tank at all.

sorry, I would have taken him in the past, but I have enough shrimp as it is in my 15g. I am sure someone will take him though, I know I really liked the one I had in the past!

Do pistol shrimp bond with Yellow watchman gobies?

Some do, but not all. I used to have my YWG paired with a Tiger Pistol shrimp. I lost the shrimp in a crash, but saved the goby. When I set up my current tank, I tried another type of pistol. I now have a tank with a goby on one end and a pistol shrimp on the other
:?
When on a journey, it is good to have an end, but in the end it's the journey that counts.
