goby questions

I have a pink spotted goby (about 4 inches) in a 75. Would it be OK to add a yellow watchman goby too? They're quite different in size and color. Also would either one likely pair up with a tiger pistol shrimp or a Caribbean pistol shrimp? (Neither of which I have yet.)

I'm not sure if they will fight. The yellow could possibly hook up with a pistol shrimp.

nice pic melosu.... i have a yellow watchman goby and pistol shrimp pair. i bought them as a pair from the lfs tho. once acclimated and added to the tank they went their seperate ways, then after 2-3 weeks, they found one another again. ) i would recommend buying as a pair. i think youd be ok with that size tank.

They usually fight if they are similar size,shape and color. My two have gotten along fine.
