Goby+pistol combo question

So I broke down and bought a yasha haze goby and a tiger pistol shrimp. My question is, if they end up making their burrow somewhere where I cant see it, what can i do to persuade the tiger to find a new spot? Just reaquascape and hope it moves somewhere more visible?

My pistol shrimp and goby are constantly making new caves all over the tank. One day under this rock next day a different rock constantly bulldozing around my tank. Hard to keep much on the sand bed

Not at all. Mine as well are everywhere. The pistol has created a network of tunnels that it travels through and he pics a different "door" to use all the time.

Cool! And the goby just follows the pistol around? How often do you hear the pistols POP?

Yup follows it everywhere. They even sleep together in the caves. The pistol will "close the doors" at night and they both disappear. It's quite neat. I hear mine quite often and the bigger it gets the louder it gets. I have a tiger pistol and yellow watchman. Their names are wasabi and ginger.
