    Some sites say it does not hurt other shrimp, some say the Randall's Pistol Shrimp may hurt ornamental shrimp. Which one is correct?

    mine gets along fine with my sexy shrimp and cleaner shrimp.
     
  3. +1 on them being fine
    I have had one in the past several times, and currently have one in my current system, along with a 1 CB Shrimp, 2 Cleaners, 1 peppermint shrimp.
    Even have kept with camel shrimp, sexy shrimp, and harliquens.

    There are "hunting" types of pistols, but there much larger

    Tiger and Randalls pistols are both great. They'll happily eliminate snails and hermits that wander too close, but anything that moves at a decent speed is safe.
