right now in my newly established tank (1 month,20g long) i had a randalls goby and a pistol shrimp but the goby died in 2 days for unknown reasons(they never paired up in that short time)
my original intention was to get a goby that sand sifts, i didnt realize other gobys form relationships with a shrimp until i went to the LFS
with my goby dead, I kind of want to go back with the idea of a goby that sifts sand because it will be nice to watch and keep it clean, but now i have a tiger pistol shrimp that is all alone and almost never comes out
should i get a goby to make the shrimp happy, or a goby to make me happy so i can watch it do its thing, for the record, i would of not got the tiger pistol shrimp had i not got a goby to accompany it, but now im stuck with it. Last question, would a shrimp goby even keep my sand clean because it looks dirty right now and the shrimp doesnt seem to have done anything except "dig" not "clean"
