A few weeks ago I added a yellow watchman goby, the lfs told me that they would form a special relationship with a pistol shrimp. I have found several pistol shrimp online I would like to know wich one is best for a home aquarium?
I purchased a tiger pistol shrimp and a yellow watchman on line, received them about a week ago. They paired up the next day and I see them all the time. The Goby stands guard at one of two entrances he and the shrimp have. I don't see the shrimp a whole lot, but the Goby is almost always out "watching". I love watching them, absolutely fasinating.
It depends on where they make their "home". If they find a suitable place in the back of the tank and it's a big tank then yes you'll rarelly see them.. What I tried to do was make a small cave and place them there...it worked out for me .
