Hello,

Got a quick question on Goby compatibility. I recently acquired a pistol shrimp with the hopes that it would pair with my two spot goby. I knew it was a long shot since two spots are not really known for this behavior so I'm not bummed that it didn't happen. I plan on introducing a shrimp goby of some sort, i'm thinking a yellow watchman, orange spotted, or randall's, and am just wondering if the two Goby's with similar roles will get along?

I know some goby like the watchmen can be aggressive towards their own kind but I figure they would look different enough to avoid conflict?

Any advice?

I've never had a 2 spot goby, but I've had several gobies, different gobies mixed in the same tank, , I like them, they are really colorful and peaceful. The general rule is one of each goby species per tank, unless they are mated. As long as the 2 fish are not similar in size and color, they should be fine, which obviously, yellow and 2 spot are very different.
