Sad to say, that pistol never did fully regenerate, and I found it belly up this morning in the back corner of the tank. I should have known it wasn't going to last based on the fact that it never made a burrow at all..
The good news, it's replacement has already dug a home of it's owned, and made best friends with my watchman goby. All within 10 minutes of adding it to the tank! No more tiger.. but this one looks to be a very close cousin, a marble pistol :).. no missing limbs on this one! It's much healthier too, only wish the tiger had been so healthy when I got it...
So more of a future note for anyone, do not buy a shrimp based on their ability to regenerate if it has anything missing. Learn from my mistake, as it would have likely died in their tank as it did in mine. Make sure it is burrowing and overall being active!
