The Randall's Pistol Shrimp or Candy Cane Shrimp, (Alpheus randalli), forms a mutualistic partnership with gobies, most notably Amblyeleotris spp.. or Prawn Gobies. In the wild, the pistol shrimp creates and maintains a burrow for itself and the fish. In turn, the fish watches for danger and food that the nearly blind shrimp would otherwise miss. This species is small, growing to a slender 3 cm in length when fully grown.
