    Hi there! Recently I purchased a mated pair of sleeper or maiden gobies at the lfs. Recently one of them died (I woke up and found the fish lying next to a piece of live rock with a hole in the bottom of it's stomach.) Now the other goby is very skinny, even though I watch her eat daily. Is...

    My clownfish have been hanging out on the rock above my goby and pistol shrimps home. Last night my goby came all the way out of his burrow. My clownfish bit off the tip of my gobys fin! Luckily my pistol shrimp came out and scared off the clownfish. But they haven't left the borrow since. Will...

    Hello everyone! I woke up this morning to find my goby gone! It is an orange spot goby, and it never moved far away from his home. It lived with a pistol shrimp, and they were super happy. I don't have any fish in there that are aggresive or are not compatible with gobies. I have a cleaner...

    Ok Ok Ok, SOO here is what happened. I came home, looked at my tank to see my mean as heck emerald crab, in my pistol shrimp/goby home (which i love soooo much) The pistol shrimp and goby are cowering in the back of the home. I stupidly try to move the crab by poking it, MOVED IT FURTHER IN...

    I have changed 1/4 of my crushed coral to sand about a week or two ago, and my yasha goby still hasn't made a borrow. I am going to add a pistol shrimp tomorrow. Why hasn't he borrowed, he is living in crevices of live rock right now.

    HELLO EVERYONE!! I am very excited because I just got a pistol shrimp to go in my 30g tank! I had an orange spotted goby in there already, and wanted it to have a buddy to hang out with, since my other inhabitants just scared it off. I put in the pistol shrimp and it immediately went into a big...

    First of all, Happy Halloween to everybody! What I believe to be my sailfin Blenny, is absolutely reaping havoc in my reef tank. First I figured out he killed my favorite serpent starfish. And now (at first I thought my emerald crab was pushing frags out to look for a new hiding spot.)...

    I have a 50 Gallon Reef tank I am setting up for seahorses. I have 2 Firefish, a 2" Bicolor Blenny and I HAD a Yasha Goby/Pistol Shrimp pair. The last fish to go in was the Bicolor, who shortly thereafter took up residence for a couple days in the same rock/burrow as the Yasha Goby and Tiger...

    I've had a goby/pistol shrimp combo on my fish list from the start, but I'm beginning to second guess it now. If I get this combo will the Goby still go around and clean the entire sand bed or will it just stay with the pistol shrimp (assuming they pair) and not stray far from one another...

  15. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    I have a 40B with 1/2 BB and 1/2 substrate (back 1/2 is BB w/ a powerhead blowing across it). I'm upgrading to a 75 acrylic and seriously thinking of going the BB Route. My concerns are: (1) Watchman goby who doesn't burrow. He like holes in the rocks. (1) Yasha Goby and Pistol pair that...

    I have a 37 gallon all in one reef tank with 2 small ocellaris clownfish, yellow watchman goby, pistol shrimp, a huge nessarius snail, 2 astrea snails, emerald crab and 7 blue legged crabs. I set this tank up 3 months ago with very small clown fish. I have been feeding them mini mysis shrimp...

    I inadvertently ended up with 2 shrimp Goby in my 46 gallon. The larger is an orange spot and the smaller a yellow watchman. Will they get along or do I need to try and remove one? The orange spot is paired with a pistol shrimp.

    I have a 55 gal. set up about 3 months ago. So far it is live rock/fish only but I plan to add coral in the future. I'm looking to add some more fish but need suggestions or input on compatibility. Some fish I have been looking at are the bangaii cardinal, a pair of firefish, small school(5)...

    My tang doesn't seem go like the sea weed, none seem go like the omega one pellets much, they will not touch flake food but they all love frozen cubes of brine shrimp. The goby and tang will eat left over pellets in the sand and on rocks. But if I put the brine shrimp in they all come out go...

    I plan on buying a diamond watchman goby once my tank is all set up and I wasn't sure which sand to go with. I was looking at CaribSea Ocean Direct Live Sand Original. Would this be ok for a goby? Should I go with the Oolite instead of Original? Or is there a better sand I should go with?
