Holes? No holes ii mine but definitely a few spots that appear piled with divots next to the piles.

They did out holes under rocks. You'll start to see some unless you have some low caves. Mine had a low cave I built, so no holes

Gobys can jump thru egg crate, seen it myself to my amazement. The Lobster is the 2nd guess, I had one for years and yes you never see them and they hunt down thing alive.

My rock is up on stilt for the most part. When I built my scape I used small pieces as pillars and then broad flat pieces to create overhangs. Then I built piles up off of that. Added sand later so there is not much to dig under per se. Some rock to dig around. One piece of rubble that is on sand and he could possibly dig under. Maybe I will give that a check tomorrow.

Yeah but nothing on floor around tank so I am skeptical about a jump. Any recommendations on capturing a lobster?

Tall glad leaning on a rock with food in it. Still, hope your goby is just hiding. Do you have an overflow? Might want to check it too. I remember Carey having on in there several times and I want to say she found a goby she thought was dead several months later when taking rock from on tasker into another.

Well no sign of him today. I am pretty sure he is a goner. That was a quick $32 gone. I see why this hobby can get expensive. Assuming it was the lobster I see it as some payback from his family to ours. Normally we pay $32 for lobster at a restaurant. He just gave me a big "fu"!

Lmfao!!! Ha ha

Sorry about the goby, but get that lobster a new home pronto and try again. Love my gobies!! The watchmans tend to be the mayor, watching everything pass by. My bullet doesn't have nearly as much personality.

I know... I loved that little guy while I had him. Very charismatic. I have a feeling that catching this lobster might be a pain in the butt. Will try the tilted bottle technique sometime this week.
