I have rescaped the tank 3 times already but the shrimp always goes back to the hole and the goby just stays at the back of the tank. Any ideas on how i can get these guys to pair up?
Well when I introduced my shrimp to my goby, I lowered him with a net to the hole where my goby was. They paired up instantly. But like others have said, they'll probably pair up eventually. Pistol shrimp are very industrious little critters and will dig throughout most of the tank. It's only a matter of time until they find each other.
