    These guys have been in my tank for I think a year or so. I had the male first, then added the female and they immediately started dating.
    They are very cool and this is the fourth gobi they have paired with and they have been with him the longest.
    Every day I shoot some clam or worms into one of their caves which are all over the 6' tank. They have a very annoying habit of building and piling up the gravel about 7". Of course they take that gravel from under the rocks causing them to topple, sometimes into the front glass
    Here is a video.
