goby/shrimp relocation

I just got a yellow watchman goby and a pistol shrimp. They aren't currently paired together, is there a way to play matchmaker? Also, the goby made a burrow behind the rockwork, and the shrimp's isn't very visible either, any way to encourage relocation?

Let nature take it's course. It will happen in due time.

+1. And unfortunately they'll make their burrows where they want, but they'll usually have a bunch of entrances and will rotate between them all IME.

Give them time. Took mine a couple weeks to pair. Also, they will come out for food but that is likely all you will see them.

Thanks everyone. I believe they have paired, after 36 hours or so. Unfortunately, they set up housekeeping behind the rockwork, all I can see is a mound of sand and two long antenna

Mine are out quite a bit. At least the goby is. Perhaps because it's a 10g nano as well. I do see the shrimp but not as often as I like and oh do I hear it a lot !!!
