Actually the Tiger is a variant of the pistol shrimp, as there are several varieties of pistol shrimp.

Any pistol shirmp should work.

They are larger than the stonogobiops species so I would go with a larger pistol shrimp like the tiger as opposed to alpheus randalli for example. They are great fish (ywg) watch out for interesting behaviour when they are threatened, they can create a dark spot below their eye and their eye becomes light a protection adaptaion for the eye I assume. pretty cool.
