BDLP,

They are a strange and fascinating combo. Came home today and the shrimp has built up a barricade around the hole. I haven't seen either one of them since I've been home but I think it's because the blenny likes to hang out in that area and ticks off the goby. If it was only for a few days, it was cool to really get to watch them do their thing.

Mushroom eating

Don't know if any of you target feed your mushrooms or not. Here is a shot after feeding one a piece of raw shrimp. Freaky but so cool.

I vote the second picture with the shrimp all the way out.

I actually have a high fin goby myself now. My yasha jumped while I was on vacation last week and somehow was accurate enough to get through the egg crate top. Glad to see your goby hangs out with the shrimp and they're out and visible. I finally got my hands on a tiger pistol shrimp, added it and haven't seen it yet. Plus to boot neither my watchman or my other goby have any interest in him.

I actually feed my ricordia mushroom like that from time to time. It's super weird and folds right up into a ball like that. I think it helped it grow faster but maybe I'm crazy.

Thanks, I did submit the 2nd picture for the month of March and won with it. It was pretty cool. I think feeding the mushroom every couple of weeks has helped it multiply the way it has. I got it back in November of 12 and it has since spawned of 7 more little shrooms over time for a total of 8. It's making new one now for the last month and a half at a rate of about one every 2 weeks. I need to thin them, lol.

Sorry to hear your gobies don't want anything to do with your shrimp. May change though at some point.

I'll get some up soon. Couple new corals and got rid of the Kenya tree. It was just getting to big. It had grown to the top of my circ pump. The downfalls of such a small tank, everything will everntually out grow it at some point. Fortunately, my lfs will take it all back.
