thx guys! I haven't found much about this little guy. They don't move much and just like to host anything they can find. When I first introduced it, he was nestled in my gsp's and now he's on my toadstool that you see in the pic. I think they are alot like sexy anemone shrimp. Maybe someone out there knows more about these.

yea, I saw that article recently too. thx bank_vault! I second this that's listed in the article:

 

-- Not content merely to relax and enjoy the ride, they are constantly on the move, normally perched near the substrate looking for food to pass by; I guess this is the marine version of “meals on wheels” --

 

FYI: he moves alot as he's now hosting my green hairy mushroom. although they don't get bothered when the shrimp is just chillin' on top, so that's a good thing :)

I totally lucked out and scored one of these guys at the LFS today :)

My guy is hanging in some red macro for the time being, he blends in pretty well

Haven't seen it in 4 days... it is either hiding really well or the pistol got a meal that im POed pretty well about.
