I see the goby every day when I feed the tank, yes they are paired. The pistol shrimp is much more stealth, you definitely can see part of him during feed time but rarely does he come all the way out during lights on... They are awesome though so cool how they work togetherNice looking tank there. How often do you see the pistol shrimp? and is it paired with the goby?
That’s what I was thinking but the LFS talked me out of it saying they can be too aggressive? I always thought they helped keep the tank in order a bit as being a fish that likes to swim all overSix line is perfect for that size tank and your current stock of fish but only add one once you’ve decided this will be your last fish. They are very territorial so they need a tank mates that have already established themselves.
Here is an excerpt from Live Aquaria.Hmmm, Ill look into it. What are the benefits of them? Do they eat flat works and pests?
Thank you! Seems like eating bristleworm and flatworm could be super benefitial, Ive been contemplating renting a Harlequin from someone to get rid of my Asterina's... Ill look into four line, sounds cool. I also love the royal gamma, and that bright yellow wrasse. Not sure if theyll all play nicely with my two clowns, midas blenny and pistol/yasha combo...Here is an excerpt from Live Aquaria.
In the home aquarium, the Four Line Wrasse requires a peaceful, established environment with a generous supply of hiding places and live rock in which it can take refuge and forage for food. Here, the Four Line Wrasse will search for live foods in the form of microfauna, small crustaceans and pyramidellid snails (clam parasites), and commensal flatworms. The Four Line Wrasse is also known to feed on smaller unwanted pests on live rock such as bristleworms.
