My new Yellow Watchman Goby!

Just got back from the LFS today. I was looking for something to stir up my sand bed, an came across this little Goby. It is about 1" long. They had this one and a larger one, about 3" long. Now, It made a burrow in the back of my tank, behind the rocks. I cant ever see him. Will he ever come out of there and swim around? Here are the pics!!!

They will eventually come out a little more but are never really out and about.

I have the golden head goby and he is very social fish.
Dude will turn over some sand.

He has a burrow under some rocks but only goes there when the lights go out.

Maybe he just needs time to get used to things.

How do you keep your golden head gobies fed? I thought they are very difficult to keep as they only take things from the sand and not free floating?

I feed mine with frozen brine shrimp. Whatever my other fish dont eat, it sinks right to the bottom, and he snatches it up. I think he is just shy because I just got him a few hours ago. I will keep updates!!!
