Can 2 candy cane pistol shrimp live together?

We are downsizing. We have a candy cane pistol shrimp in a 38 gallon. We have to rehome a yellow watchman goby/candy cane pistol shrimp pair - will 2 pistol shrimp get along ok in a 38 gal. aquarium?

the 2 shrimp will be fine in a 38g along with the goby just be sure not to overstock the 38g
what other stock are you planning on keeping

The only other inhabitants right now are a PJ Cardinal, cleaning crew, zoas, and palys.

you wouldn't be over stocked all the inverts would have a very small bio load
zoa's pallys and corals don't effect bio load , and fish would be fine .
when your ready to transfer I would add new sand ,other than that transfer over rock and zoa's pallys coral ect , than all the inverts you can find the 2 candy cane pistols will probably be the hardest to rally up as they'll bury them self's

if using the existing rock you most likely wont see a cycle maybe a slight swing but that should level out by the next day
