Hi fine red banded goby with pistol shrimp

Just thought I'd upload a quick photo of my goby and shrimp

Thanks, I'm not the greatest at photography, so it's great to get some feedback. I also love this pair. My cleaner shrimp always tries to jump on the goby, but he always manages to slip away.

:D

I have the same pair...and the Goby FINALLY found the shrimp's burrow and paired up last Saturday. I have my macro lens ready and will take some shots to share tommorrow. Since the pairing the Goby has odd red lines under his eyes.

 

Does your shrimp just pick up one piece of substrate at a time? It's so funny to watch.

This is a rare shot, I almost never see the two of them together. When I first got them, I didn't see the shrimp or goby for a month, then they just popped up one day!

My shrimp usually brings out HUGE portions of sand at a time. It is very funny to watch!

A day after they paired, the Goby has looked like this...doesn't look right to me...

I wonder if there's some violence involved in the pairings. When I got mine, he found the shrimp immediately and disappeared for a week. When he reappeared, he had red marks that looked like scratches on the first black stripe.

They did heal up after a month or so, and he hasn't been injured since. All I can think of is the shrimp did something or it got scratched on the rocks somehow. Hopefully yours will heal up quickly without a problem too.

yeah, probably less than a week it started to fade. It's almost completely gone now.

Whenever my pistol shrimp fires off, my wife says "the goby got pimp slapped again". lol, I think they might take a few hits in the pitch black cave.
