Watchmen Gobies are incredibly trainable.

I'm truely suprised.


It took all of a few weeks, to get my Watchmen Goby from new in the tank, hiding all the time.

To having him come out and prop up all proud and mighty on the rockwork the second I open the tank up to feed the tank.


He knows when I feed to, and he sits out and waits for me. Spoiled bum even gets his food handed to him [ I drop it right infront of his mouth, all he has to do is open and he sucks it right in ]


I'm just suprised at how easy these guys are to train and teach.

Hopefully with the goby around you will see more of your pistol. My two are out all of the time. Goby is guarding the cave while the pistol bull-dozes sand out of it. They have a pretty extensive tunnel system under the rocks. Whenever the pistol is out of the cave it aways has one antenia on the goby for security. This is the same behavior exhibitited in the wild. If the goby moves, the shrimp in gone in the blink of an eye.

I know, but at this point I can't justify the expense.
