Well it looks like my fish aren't friends :(

One is constantly chasing the other around.

There go those hopes!

Gobies will change sex in either direction, depending on the dominance established by the pair. Tough it out, and make sure both get some food. Through time, and a bit of biff, they should become a pair.

I haven't actually seen either of them eat, but they've been in there 2 weeks and they're still swimming so they must be having something!

And the aggression is new... they were fine for the first week!

Right so I'm out. The smaller of my two fish never started eating, it is see through and I doubt he'll see through the weekend. The other is healthy and fine and tries to swallow whole mysis, rather entertaining to watch.

It was a nice thought to entertain, anyway...
