High fin gobie and pistol shrimp, havenít seen since I brought home?

Are these guys super good at hide and seek or what? I have already 2 clowns that eat out of my hand. Last Saturday I bought a royal gamma and a pistol shrimp and high fin gobie. The gamma hid in a rock the the first day but would dart out when I fed. By Wednesday he still hangs out in the rocks but comes out like heís friendly when I feed. Since Saturday night Iíve not once seen the high fin or the pistol shrimp. Not even when I feed. When I first brought the shrimp home he dug underneath the sand in front of the tank as soon as he touched the sand. I didnít see where the high fin went. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?

Thanks!

Pretty much, yes.

The only reason I know my Alpheus shrimp is still alive is that he clicks five, six times around 11pm. Very consistently. I saw him dig out a couple caves the first three days, but I havenít seen him in about 5-6 weeks now

The gobie and shrimp were paired nicely at the LFS and were entertaining to watch. I’ll keep looking!
