crap..I lost a 50 dollar bill in my tank..

I picked up an awesome tiger pistol shrimp and hi-fin goby a few days ago--they were paired and fantastical...I got to watch them follow each other around for about 4 minutes before they disappeared in my rockwork. Don't think I'll ever see them again---especially after it took the LFS guy 20 minutes to find them in a 5 gallon tank. Now I'm afraid they'll starve and foul up my tank.

How big is your tank? Give them some time to adjust. With any new additions, they need some time to get use to their new surroundings. They may come out more later. As long as they're properly fed they should be ok.

They will be fine. I hardly ever see my pistol. They have (pistols) very poor eyesite and tend to stay in their burrows. When you feed the tank, the pistol should come out with it's antenna touching the goby or the goby will bring food back to him.

I agree with Scott, they should be just fine.

My shrimp and goby came in separate tanks. I got the LFS guy to put them in the same bag. When I got home I put them both in a small container to drip acclimate them..they started following each other around in there.
