I've had cleaner shrimp that did this regularly. My pep stayed on my hand when I placed it in the tank but it generally runs away.

My peppermint shrimp are becoming braver everyday. They've been in our tank for about 2 months. For the first month we thought they'd all died. Never saw em! Then we got rid of our dottyback (vicious little monster) and now they are cleaning up a storm. Rocks, sand, maybe even the tang.

The 2 LFS I go to both sell cleaner shrimps at $30

My fire shrimp has began moving to a more open cave and walks out of the cave a little bit sometimes during feeding. I was surprised when I first saw this since it was always hiding between 2 LR

Carey, I found it's easier to move the shrimp to the goby rather than move the goby to the shrimp. Get you some 1/2 or 3/4 pvc, about 3 feet will work. Then try to catch the shrimp and then put him in the PVC and direct him towards the goby's burrow. I'm 2 for 2 on this method. Once on first introduction, and second when I put my fish back in the DT from the hospital tank.

Thanks for the tip. I've seen the pistol shrimp twice so far, and only half of him lol

The goby has gone over to the pistols area but they haven't "clicked" yet to speak i guess

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
