I have one and don't feed it anything. I just assume he scavenges for what he needs. The relationship with my pistol shrimp is amazing to watch. the goby is almost like a guard dog defending the pistol shrimp

Mine eats just about any meaty foods that come his way (mysis, brine, squid). ****, he'll even eat minced up cocktail shrimp.

When I first got him he wouldn't touch prepared food at all. After a few days I used garlic and he hasn't stopped eating since.
