    Default Goby/shrimp behavior??

    Not sure what's going on buuuuuuuut~got up this morning to find my Yellow nose prawn lounging around the shrooms and NOT in his little cave with Mz. Pistol shrimp. They've never separated before, not once since I've had them.
    Anyone got any ideas??? The shrimp is ok as far as I can tell, I shone a light into the cave and *snap snap* so I know it's alive. The goby is just hiding under a rocky cave on the far side from the shrimp~ he's eating also.

    Interesting. I'm not sure what's up with that. My YG/Pistol pair have not done that before. I would wait it out and they should get back together. I'd probably also put some screen/cover on the tank while they're apart. Gobies can be kinda jumpy if they're not settled in a cave.

    Keep us posted,

    I have a blue dot and a tiger pistol. The goby will wander out for food, or seemingly for fun, but when the lights go back out, or he's startled, back in to the cave he goes.
