Have a magenta dottyback, it's pretty fish and supposed to be a great community fish. However mine is a bit territorial and most hides in my rock work.

I think I will try the goby/shrimp pair and hope the burrow where I can see them.

Make sure your rock is stable. I can see mine is shifting from the shrimp digging. Hoping I don't have a landslide.

Ya stupid me never did that. Keeping a close eye and if I have to I will intervene and restableize with as little disturbance as possible. Crossing fingers. But on the plus side the shrimp is doing all the work at putting the rock on the bottom for me. Hahahaha and he's only a half inch long.

No I think he is still to small for that. All he does is dig! It's quite cool at night he even covers the burrow so him and the goby can sleep together in peace. I've named them. Goby is ginger and the shrimp is wasabi. I have a sushi theme going on. Lol

That I'm unsure of. The two I got we're already together. From what I hear you can get them separately and they just need to find each other in the tank.
