    Evicting a Pistol Shrimp/Goby pair

    I'd like to encourage my Pistol Shrimp and Goby pair to move to a better more visable location. They are at the back in the corner and Im frustrated as I didnt pay all that money to not be able to watch them do their thing. I'd like to see if there is a safe, good way to encourage them to move to the front. I was thinking that if I very carefully put some small rocks around where they are now that they may want to move due to the obstructions. I dont want to stress anyone out though so if someone has a history with these fun little guys let me know what you think.

    ya.. put something it can't move.
    but odds are, it will always move from spot to spot all the time anyways. they are never satisfied with the craters they make.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Make sure to keep an eye on what they are digging up up and look for any potential weak rock structure spots. They are great diggers and if your rock structure is not already touching the bottom pane... it will sooner or later.
