The Yellow Watchman Goby is also known as the Yellow Prawn, or Yellow Shrimp Goby. They have been known to form symbiotic relationships with pistol shrimp.
To be successful with the Yellow Watchman Goby you will need at least a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of loose coral rubble, ample swimming room, and a sand bottom for burrowing. It rarely becomes aggressive towards other fish, but it is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. It may try to jump out of the aquarium or other small openings, therefore, a tight-fitting lid is required to prevent escape.
