    Help with a Diamond Goby.

    I bought one two weeks ago. He hid under the rock . . . . I never saw him for over a week. He finally ventured out after about 10 days but scampers back under the rock anytime we go near the aquarium. It has been fifteen days now . . . he is still ducking under the rocks.. \ Give him/her time.
