I really enjoy my pistol shrimp. It will be fun once i can get a goby for mine too!!
It was sold to me as a red high fin banded goby. As far as research, I've failed to do any on it. The guy I got it from had it in a 40b, and I took him at his word that it would work out. Being about 1.5" (If that) long, I think it'll be ok in my tank haha.

That hole that it is popping out of is about the diameter of my finger. It is nestled up all cozy like with the pistol down in there... I can see them from under the tank at night when the refugium light is on.

Not quite front and center. If you look at the FTS, it's 2 rocks to the right of that purple one in the center... below and just to the right of the green mille.

Cool little guy!

By the way, that camera is very impressive!

EDIT: He also looks like a Hi Fin Red Banded to me.

Thanks, redsea.

I got my frags in today. One of them looked a little iffy in the bag, but I think it'll be ok (see below)... the other I'm not so sure about. It's a lobo and I can see what I assume to be skeleton? Anyhoo, I'll point it out down the list as well. Overall, I am VERY pleased. They are very small, but such awesome frags. I'm not sure I placed them all correctly, but I think I did. I'll try and get a FTS once I get it cleared up. You'll notice the pics are a little hazy... that's from this mystery white milky color to the tank. I tried to get a pic tonight, but it's a little too cloudy to really see any detail.

Acans -









Favias (I suppose that means more than one favia haha)-





The Lobo... Any thoughts as to the health of this?



Shroom -

Ricordeas -







And the one that didn't look good in the bag (but still doesn't look great)



Zoas -





Mystery Paly (literally chose 'mystery coral' on checkout, this is what I got)




And a chalice -

I believe another FTS is necessary! Those corals are awesome. They make me really want a reef!
