Nicole the Dracula Goby feeding her pistol shrimp pair. I have yet to see the shrimp get their own food. Whenever I feed, Nicole ushers the shrimp back into their home, eats food and then feeds Jeremy and his partner. Very cute.

Such a good fish!!!! She’s so delicate about it. My goby just grabs The Largest peice of food he can find

Some pics from the beach yesterday!!! The jetty rocks are a nice place to sunbathe until the tide comes in and washes over you.

Plot twist! Nicole is the queen of pistol shrimp! I was watching the tank yesterday, hoping to get a shot of Jeremy and suddenly, I saw movement behind Jeremy! It was the other pistol shrimp that I added when I presumed Jeremy dead. Normally, pistol shrimp kill each other and I had heard popping in the tank before, so I assumed that they met up and only one survived. Apparently, they were popping at something else and are actually sharing Nicole and a burrow! I’m very excited about this turn of events. Maybe the shrimp pair should be Wayhaught since the gobies did not pair back up. Photos of them are probably going to be like this because they are still adjusting to being in that spot, but I look forward to seeing more of them!

That is so cool!!!!!!

paws-gills-and-polyps:

A few shots of my Dracula Goby (Stonogobiops dracula) that I acquired from LiveAquaria. I actually bought a bonded pair with a pistol shrimp so the trio are naturally named Nicole, Waverly and Jeremy, but unfortunately, Waverly and Nicole were separated when transferred from quarantine to the main tank and have never appeared together again. The one photographed is Nicole and they live, with Jeremy on the right side of the tank. Waverly shares a cave on the left side with zebra barred dartfish. Nicole and Jeremy have done lots of reconstruction on the right side under the rocks. It’s actually been great seeing them because they were previously being terrorized by Gilbert (yellow eyed kole tang) who has since been captured and taken back to the LFS. My experience with these fish has been that they are very peaceful and that Nicole will actually put food into Jeremy’s tunnels after getting their own share. Video of this behavior to come!

What a cutie! Their round little dorsal fin is adorable. Do you have any pics with Jeremy??

Watching them feed their shrimp is so cute
