The Tiger Pistol Shrimp forms a mutualistic partnership with Prawn Gobies. In the wild, the fish warns the pistol shrimp of danger and the shrimp burrows and provides the fish with a home. In the wild, the Tiger 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 larger than the Randall's Pistol Shrimp. It is both stockier, and they grow to 2 inches in length. Because of their larger size they are not compatible with most ornamental shrimp.
