Blue-spotted Watchman Goby addition

Finally decided to get a watchman Goby after reading all of your posts...he is about 3 inches long and 1/2 inch wide and has a BIG mouth!!!

I would like to add a shrimp to be a companion to him, but I don't want him to eat him....is there a trick to introductions or is it just plain luck if they pair?

He eats well and doesn't seem afraid of things or the other fish...actually he is pretty mellow..I really like this Goby...I haven't seen him sift any sand yet...is that typical of this type?

He is in a 75 SW with lots of LR (sorry can't post pics...no camera for that) and has taken a spot in back under a rock for his place.

I also want to get another Neon Cleaner Goby and I don't want him eaten either as my last one cleaned all my fish. Do they eat other little Gobies?

Any info will be appreciated...Thanks

Can anyone that has one of these Gobies give me any information on them? Are they a threat to a Cleaner Shrimp?
