So my male Rhinogobius died a few days ago and today I was wondering where he was. So I moved everything and then finally found him in the sea snail shell about fist sized I'm sad. The female is still alive and I took the shell out so the S. semoni don't get stuck in there too or the female. He was just starting to get his pretty red markings on his jaw and dorsal fins. What should I do with the female? I'm thinking of putting her in her own five gallon while as soon as it gets warm enough to put my white clouds outside.

Oh no not this guy again

It is always a very bad idea, to keep only a pair of Rhinogobius.

An even worse idea would be, to put the female alone in a tank. She would very quickly become apathetic and die. Rhinogobius are group fishes that are highly dependent on their social contacts. To keep them alone, would be torture.
