    Help! I got a new watchman goby on Sunday, and everything looked great! He is a smaller fish in comparison to the rest of my tank, but seemed to settle in nicely. He has been eating fine, and took up residency in the front corner of the tank. Today when I checked on him, he was covered in...

    One of my tanks is a small (29 g) bio cube. In it I had only a purple filefish and a yellow watchman goby. Two days ago I added a tiger pistol shrimp and a starry blenny (I had ordered a LM blend from live aquaria but received a starry instead). So once I finally drip acclimated and got them...

    So two new things. I finally got the watchman to come out and he is gorgeous lol, and I reaquascaped again. The old one was wobbly and eh. I'm trying a simplistic design now tell me your thoughts. And also the watchman hasn't been eating, or at least I haven't seen him eat he's so sneaky. And...

    So I'm like really really baffled by this. I bought a blue spotted watchman goby on Friday and within the same day he just like. Disapeared. I put him in the tank and I come back to it to feed him and he's like gone. Seriously no sign of him. I've read that these guys like to hide but he's been...

    My clown and goby do this sort of thing all the time in the video below. They never hurt each other. The clown always opens its mouth on the goby when they get close and she pushes the goby sometimes, but the goby doesn't mind it. It's so weird. One time the goby perched on the clown and they...

    Soo I've had a pinkbar watchman goby and a tiger pistol shrimp for about two weeks now. I bought them both from my LFS the same day and they paired during the first night. Everythings fine except for the last two nights I noticed my pistol shrimp seals his burrow in the morning with my watchman...

    so, i added a pistol shrimp and a watchman goby in my 10g tank today, but since the shrimp is digging for the cave, and whenever the goby come near, he tried to drag the goby down the cave with him, is that ok or i need to do something??:help::help::help:

    Hello everyone, Yesterday I purchased what I believe to be a blue spotted watchman goby ( lfs didn't have an Id on him) I will get a picture of him up once he comes out of his cave. My question is what pistol shrimp species would most successfully pair with him. The lfs I go to more often has...

    Just replaced my Diamond Watchman Goby on Tuesday and he immediately dissapeared and I have not seen him since and now it is Thursday. I did a little cleaning yesterday and picked up as many rocks I could to see if I could find him but I have so many rocks that I could not move a couple without...

    Just went through bad experience with the pairing of watchman goby and pistol shrimp. I have an orangespotted watchman goby in my tank and was thinking about getting him a partner, so I went to get a pistol shrimp today. I was acclimating him and then put him in the net and released him at the...

    I added a Candy Cane pistol shrimp and a Yellow Watchman Goby to my 55g tank 10 days ago. The lfs told that they would eventually "find each other." I have spotted the pistol shrimp working on his/her burrow beneath a small rock, but no sign at all of the goby since I placed him in the...

    :wavey: Just wondering if anyone else out there has experienced this. I aquascape my tank, arranging rocks and plants til it's perfect. Walk back to my tank an hour later and it's all rearranged. Plants drifting in the current, rocks moved or knocked over. I believe in flow, but there's no...

    I added a pistol shrimp and yellow watchman goby pair to my tank on Friday morning. I drip acclimated them for 2.5 hours. When I added them to the tank, the pistol shrimp immediately darted for the rocks, and I haven't seen him since. The goby headed for the corner of the tank and sat there...

    I just got a diamond watchman goby and he is making a huge mess in my 120 gallon. He is very cool to watch, but is clouding up the water something awful. My tank is 1 1/2 years old with a 2 1/2 inch deep sand bed and the substrate is a fine grain sand. There is a lot of silt in the sand that...
