Oh, almost forgot,the new diamond goby has already dug himself a nice large borrow, exactly 6 feet away from my watchman gobies territory. So far they havent met but I;m hoping they don't fight if they do. The new guy is still a little jumpy though.

Anyone know if diamond sifting gobies can form a relationship with a pistol shrimp? Cause the pink wathcman I have doesnt seem to want anything to do with the pistol and it's been months. LOL

Just plain ole zooas, they are kinda pink but are taking over, almost time to learn to frag.

You and I are in the same boat. Going to have to do everything I can with frags and just wait for them to grow.

it depends on the zoa. some are super fast growers (usually the ones you don't want to keep) and the really really really colorful ones are slow as molasses...lol

I have soem regualr generic zooas and they grow like weeds. I need to start fragging they are so out of control. I did get 4 polyps of lunar eclipses and I already have 3 new polyps budding in just a few weeks.

i also have bad news on the 125g and good news.

The good news is I bought a HUGE ginormous toadstool leather.

The bad news is I came after about 3 hours out and founbd my new diamond sifting goby dead. :-( :-(

He was fine on the far left of the tank when I left the house adn when I got back he was in the lair of the pistol shrimp, dead.

I;m not sure if the pistol got him or he just died. He was acclimated over 2 hours and was fine when I left. No marks on him, just dead. The snails had just begun to start their buffet when I got him out.

Could a pistol shrimp actually kill a goby? I have no idea how big the pistol is now either, he has molted several times in the last few weeks and I havent seen him since he went into the tank a few months ago.

OR should I just stop buying my fish at petco? He really was sifting alot adn looked like he was perfectly healthy.
