    Hi All,
    I am seriously looking for a medium to large Yellow Watchman Goby. Mine died for no apparent reason after being with a Pistol Shrimp for more than a year. They were extremely close and very happy. I am afraid the Pistol will perish now as he does not come out into the open without his Watchman. I am feeding him with the feeding tube to make sure he gets food.

    I have been to most of the LFS in the Johannesburg/Pretoria area but they all have extremely small specimens, which would not be wise to pair with the Pistol.

    Please!!! I am desperate :dft004::dft004::dft004:

    A photo of the pair!

    Just a word of caution, there is a chance they won't pair.

    Anyways, if you don't here anything from the sponsors try Lifestyle garden center. They had watchmans a few weeks ago..

    GREAT NEWS:lol::thumbup:

    After reporting on 5/10/2011 that my beloved Yellow Watchman Goby died and left my Pistol Shrimp all alone and hidden away to the extent that I thought he will not make it, I finally got a beautiful Watchman yesterday.
    I added him to the tank and within 15 min I heard the Pistol clicking. The Goby dissapeared under the rock and voila..... out they came.... together..... big buds!!!! The goby is taking fish from the feeder and spitting it back into the hole where the pistol is. I am so chuffed... :biggrin::biggrin:
