This Goby/Pistol pair?
I have done some research and I want a Goby and Pistol shrimp in my 10 gallon tank. I first looked at the YWG and the Carribean Pistol shrimp but they seemed alittle too ordinary. After a little research I found 2 that caught my eye. The orange spotted Shrimp Goby and the tiger pistol Shrimp. Will they for them bond in my tank(I have caves and fine sand along with alot of rock)?
Is there anything wrong with this choice? Also these will be the only fish(besides a scarlet cleaner shrimp and corals).
Thank you(copied from a post from another forum I made)
they would be an awsome addition...usualy pricey especialy if they are paired...they should...i mean SHOULD...pair up with the pistol...but this is not always the case and i have met a couple people who didnt have luck with the bobies bonding....i think it will be fine with your setup...the confined quarters and favored hiding spot will help persuade them to co operate with one another...let us know how it goes..oh and be carfull of any way the pistol can get in the overflow or filter...they are secretive and able to fit in small places...
I asked other people and decided on a Yasha Hasha goby and I am having trouble deciding which shrimp to get. The candy cane shrimp(or whatever it is) or the Caribbean pistol shrimp. I decided against the Tiger because they said that tigers might attack the nerites and might move my frags. Any thoughts on the other 2 shrimp?
all the pistol shrimp like to move things around..particularly in the vacinity of there lair..as far as corals they would have to be small and not so well placed for them to move them...
