I know about that link. I was told by one of my LFS that it depends on which Pistol Shrimp that would pair up with a Gobie. Basically right now I know it's hit or miss. But maybe I am trying to say is does anyone have a Pistol Shrimp paired up with a Blue Spotted Gobie and which Kind?

I personally dont think that a certain kind of goby will only pair up with a certain type pistol shrimp. If he`s a shrimp goby then he`ll team up with a shrimp . That is if they want to. As you said it`s hit or miss. I just dont think anyone can give you a certain type. JMO

Fair Enough. I guess I'll just go down this weekend and see what my LFS is talking about, and hopefully come home with one.....

Sounds like a plan to me. Maybe a pic?

True. No pistol is more prone to hook up with a certain goby IMO either.

I'm not sure either. A way to have a better chance (just a guess here) pick the shrimp that is from the same area as the goby.....

I was at my LFS yesturday and the owner is going to be breaking down a few tanks. He has a male and female yellow shrimp goby, (in different tanks). He said he will let me have them $$$. They are not with any pistol shimp now, so if I put the gobies and pistol shimp in my tank will they pair up with 1 shimp together?
Dose that question even make any since?
I guess what I mean is, will they be a threesom?
