Unhappy $30 dollars down th drain! Tiger Pistol Eaten

Well today I went and bought my Tiger Pistol Shrimp for my Blue Spotted Gobie. Acclamated him for and 1 1/2 hr. Shrimp was building his burrow and the Gobie looked at him and started eating him..... .... I was NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!. Well I Guess maybe it was my fault for not pairing them at the same time. I alreadu had the gobie for more than a Month. I am so upset I onloy had the Tiger for no more than 2 hrs........ I am wondering now if my Bluespotted Gobie is a Hybrid with Tiger Gobie? on his head he has the Blue Spots but his body has Tiger Strips?.... I am wondering if he can even be paired with a Pistol Shrimp and I just finish feeding him and his belly was fat. any clue what could of happen?

I thought they could but I guess maybe my Gobie was just way to big and he was way 2 small. Big big fish is a small snack for him. That was the most expensive snack I have ever seen...LOL....

Oh Lala... I don't know what is better, watching your $30 eaten up in front of you or dead and flush it on the toilet? but in any case, I still feel bad for your loss...

I'd get rid of the monster goby and start over again if it were me. Dangit!

Sorry for you loss. Those are not shrimp gobys, I think. It's still strange he ate him...

I am just going to go back to the drawing board with him. I will sell him back 2 the LFS for credit and hopefully get a gobie and pistol paired.
