yellow watchmen goby

so i got a yellow watchman goby and a black and white cardinal fish. i did the float bag and all and fish look great. all my level are fine. ph 8.3 temp 79 nitrate 0 nitrite 0 ammonia 0 and between 0.25 like nothing. salanity 1.024. i notice that the yellow watchmen goby got little pale. what can be cauing this? i mean he is eating great. Cardinal and my yellow tail damsel and snail and all are doing great too. Goby swims all along the back and he swims to the glass almost like he wants to jump out but he isnt breathing heavy or anything. i just want to make sure he is ok and not stress or anything? i mean i heard something that when a female get tranfer to a tank that she can get pale. Is that true?

Now he likes to swim up and down and sit on the back of my protein skimmer which is like 2 inchs from the top. Do I got to worry about him jumping out?

How big is the tank, I read they can be jumpers especially in smaller tanks

I don't think so my other fish are fine I mean I just drop some blood worms in and he was eating fine. I think he trying to jump out cause he poke his head out a couple times. And then he relax on the bottom and try again

I think he will be fine, and if your worried about him jumping get something to go over the top of the tank so he cant, other wise just keep an eye on him
