The other day while moving a few things in my reef, I noticed that the bullseye Pistol shrimp Ive had for a few years but never see was living in the same rock as my Midas Blenny. After watching for a while, I noticed that the Midas was acting as a goby would other types of pistol and thought it was strange since this type of pistol doesn't pair with Gobys in the wild! Just now I noticed that the Pistol was very close to the front of the hole so I was able to snap a few pics! Ive never heard of that before. Sorry for the bad quality pics!

Very odd. Midas and the bulleyes pairing up...

Never heard of a bullseye nor Midas doing it.

Thats really cool. Is the midas still fairly active or does it spend most of the time with the pistol? Even if its just coincidence and they happily cohabit the same spot its something very cool.

Very active, but always goes back to the same rock. He hangs out in the middle on the tank where the auto feeder is waiting for food!
