View Full Version : Yasha goby in distress, please help!

In short, my yasha goby appears to be hyperventilating and has a bloated stomach. Below I will put a little backstory/information in case it helps.

My mom and I got a yasha goby/pistol shrimp pair almost two weeks ago. About a week ago the shrimp died. My mom and I went on a small vacation from Friday afternoon through this afternoon (Tuesday). We had someone come on Sunday to feed and top off the tank. She seemed fine when we got home. We fed her thawed myesis and she ate A LOT. She acted starving. Tonight, she had a bloated stomach and appeared to be hyperventilating. She was constantly waving her tail as well.

Does anyone know what this could be? Did she eat too much? Is it something else?

(I do not have my water parameters. I have my water tested at my LFS which we have not had a chance to go to. Our salinity and temperature is fine though)

Saw this happened earlier in the month. How is the yasha doing now?

I forgot I even posted this lol
She's doing fine. The next morning she was almost completely back to normal.
Thanks though!

Awesome news. I am going to get one soon to put in a nano tank. They look so darn cool.
