Yellow Watchman Goby + Seahorse?

I have a yellow watchman goby in my smaller tank that I bought for seahorses and when I had other fish in there, he seemed stressed. Now I moved all the fish in my bigger tank and now its just my cleaner shrimp and my staghorn hermit and he is fine. So I was thinking of just leaving him in there until I get the seahorse. So my question is, has anyone been successful with keeping them together? He is a very slow eater and is not aggressive at all. Seems like a good tankmate for a SH.

If there would be any fish that i would put with a seahorse.. it would either be a clown goby.. or the watchman goby. From what i've read from other peoples experiences with the YWG's.. they are pretty slow eaters and they usually have to put food directly in front of them otherwise the other fish will eat all the food.. Pretty much the same deal with a seahorse.

ya the yellow watchman goby should be just fine with seahorses. i just put a red firefish in with mine and my horses still get enough to eat. here are some compatibility lits for seahorses that i have found
