The Pinkbar Goby is a type of Shrimp Goby, and will pair with a variety of pistol shrimps. This unique symbiotic relationship is quite interesting to observe. The goby serves as lookout while the nearly blind shrimp keeps their burrow dug out and tidy. It requires mixed substrate to construct its burrow. They are best kept singly, or in pairs.
