Just picked up a high finned red banded goby and a tiger pistol shrimp. Hopefully they pair up. They are following each other around in the bag while acclimating.

While searching the net trying to decide which one o get, this one was always my first choice. While very small, the colors are gorgeuos. Hopefully they dont decie to make their burrow behind the rocks.

They've been in for a couple hours. The Shrimp disappeared into the substrate ( I think) instantly. The Goby was out for awhile, now they've both disappeared. Now let the waiting game begin to see what happens.

A little update. The shrimp has made his burrow, lol. Now to find the goby. The burrow is kinda between rocks but hopefully they'll get out in front soon.

They find each other. It's starts out at one burrow, ends with an infinite amount of tunnels. That's what I love about them. My goby will pop out at the most random spots sometimes with his buddy not far behind.

Anyone care to guess where my pistol shrimp made his first burrow? No sign of the goby but I suspect he's behind the mound.

Goby is starting to show himself between the rocks a little. I put some frozen reef plankton in tonight and saw both the goby and the blnny eating some.

That shrimp has built quite the little mound.

Wow nice that is pretty cool. I actually picked up a yasha hashe goby which is like your high fin guy only he's all white with orange stripes and a big tall fin. The pistol shrimp/goby pair is so cool. I've been waiting a month for my LFS to get a pistol shrimp to add for him.
