Your watchman will live mostly at the bottom and not very likely to jump. Of course there's no guarantee it won't if he's harrassed, chased, or frightened. Good fish to add and if you're looking for shrimp gobies, there are plenty of other choices to the yellow watchman.

Yes they can jump. They are small enough to get through egg crate. Some fish of the same species will jump and others are calm. I had a yellow coris jump into the skimmer box and die, the tank was completely covered it jumped twice when I acclimated it. The second one is so nice and calm that it has never tried to jump. Same type of fish two totally different personalities.

If you decide on the watchman goby you will enjoy it if is anything like my wheeler goby.
