Do any of you target feed your pistols or just let them fend for themselves? Right now when I feed mysis I try to stick some in the sand next to an entrance.

I do not target feed my pistol, he gets plenty of food at feeding time. Rocket...you should be fine with a pistol and a CBS. Mine have no problems. I think mine has dug a vast network of trails under all of my LR. I see him and my yellow matchman goby at one spot, then a few minutes later they are under a totally different rock. They go everywhere. Very cool.

I added a couple of high fin shrimp gobies once. The one with stripes. Often I would see the watchman and the high finned sitting there together, peacefully co-existing watching the hole. Had to take the high finned back. They kept going into the overflow eing so small.

If mated watchman, I'm thinking no problem. I don't target feed my shrimp either. But pellets work well for him. He never comes out of the hole in time to get the floating food. Been doing fine and growing in the 10 months I've had him.

As promised here is a picture. Sorry it took so long but with a 2 year old and a 4 month old I don't get a lot of free time

This is one of his entrances. Not the grandest of them but the only one I can get a good shot at.

The little bugger stole a Zoo colony (about the size of a quarter) today when I fed him. He came out to grab a pellet and then thought "hey these flowers sure would look nice in my living room" and away he went with them. Luckily they got stuck part way down the tunnel but I had to tear it apart to get them back! He certainly is entertaining.

Note to self: by that crazy glue so the hermits can't keep knocking the Zoos over.
