Here's my "little" guy. He's actually pretty big, him and all his whiskery glory!

It's in about the same position as Firemedic's CBS. Does he bother anyone? Who are his tankmates?

His tank mates are a striped cardinal, perc clown and a scissor tail goby along with an assortment of CUC. He doesnt bother anyone. Every now and again one of the fish will roam into his cave and he chases them out but nothing more then that

Good deal, I'm assuming you're talking rock cave and not sand cave.
Right now I have a pair of clarkii's and a yellow watchman goby.

Yeah he's up in the rock work. If you get one I suggest making it a little cave of some sort. It will be much happier

This tank has a lot of caves in it. The watchman dug himself in on the leftmost rock of the tank, and the clowns hover around a cave not too far from that. I think there are still some good spots left though

I agree about the caves. Mine loves them. He hangs upside down in them and chases out anybody that dares to enter. He isn't aggressive, just insistent. He will come out and wander around and sometimes perch on top of the rocks. Sometimes he sits out in the open on the sand. The tang keeps trying to get him to clean her but he isn't really interested. Tons of fun to watch.

I finally got a blue coral banded shrimp. This guy is tiny, very tiny. My LFS told me didn't have to buy it since it was so small (I had them order the blue one specially for me) I was slightly worried my clarkii's would eat him, but so far so good. They cornered him after I first put him in there, but then backed away and he went to hang under a rock in the other corner. So far so good, but he's only been in there like 20minutes :p

How much did you end up paying for it then?? Small like the size of a penny? Or sexy shrimp size? Any pics? Probably hard to get one if hes so small and hiding haha. I bet he is cute!

I don't have a good pic at all Don't mind the nasties on the glass and sand, purchased a dirty setup, slowly getting it all cleaned up (parameters are good) Anyhow here is the only pic I got, was paying too much attention to see if the clowns will attack or not.



If I can get a decent pic I'll post it, right now he's behind a rock and I can barely see him at all. Oh price, they wanted $19.99, but she gave him to me for $12.99 Also said that if the clowns do mow him over they'll replace him for me since he is so tiny, but they didn't think the clowns would bother him too much.
