    Hi.

    My father in law got yesterday an engineer goby and he doesn't eat at all... He swims freely and not seems to be not healthy. Is it normal? The food he gives them is Mysis Shrimp (frozen)

    How new is it? It's not uncommon for new fish not to eat right at first.

    Nevermind you said yesterday duh! He might just need a little time to get used to the new tank.

    It can also be difficult to get gobies to eat prepared foods

    So should he keep feed as usual until he will join the team or should he get a different food for him?

    i would keep up with the food you are using for a few more days, and then he continues to not eat try something else.
