They are just shy fish. Cardinals are peaceful too. They should do ok together. Just make sure everyone is eating.
I have a 65 gal. FOWLR I have a cleaner wrasse (Lil' guy), a yellow meringue (white belly) wrasse (boss of the tank), a watchman goby/tiger shrimp, 2 firefish, 2 PJ Cardinals, a choco chip starfish and some snails & conches.
Sorry what would you like to add? I wasn’t catching your question?
I would like to add to this, what would you suggest? I really like the peaceful vibe going on. The only times I had any animosity in my tank was with the yellow wrasse and the molly and also the yellow wrasse with a royal gramma. The meringue is more aggressive than usually described.
You could probably add one more small fish. Small goby or wrasse. I’m cautious with saltwater tanks.My bad, I would like to add more fish, I don't want to overwhelm the system though. But I think a 65 gal. could hold 1 or 2 more fish.
I love my shrimp/gobie combo but not sure if other crustaceans would work in there.
I’d concentrate on more rock before anything. Pistol shrimp shouldn’t fight. They will find their own homes or hang out together.View attachment 652296
Not as much Live Rock as I want yet. I was think of making something out of pvc to prop them up out of the sand more.
Can multiple gobie/shrimp combos work? I was wondering if the shrimp would fight? I haven't considered what other crustaceans, I am open to ideas.
