help picking out a goby plz =)

Im looking to buy a goby but i cant figure out which one i would like to buy.... anyone have any advice or favorites on the list? I like the rainfords goby and also the yellow watchman but i wouldnt want a watchman to eat my shrimp or other inverts. also another question if you dont mind me asking; does can you mix gobies or pair them up?, and also are there any other symbiotic pairs with gobies beside the watchman and the pistol shrimp?

I am a big fan of my decorated goby. There are a few pics of him in my gallery. I do believe that he may be responsible for the disappearance of my cleaner shrimp, though.

You know you are a true fish-o-holic if you can field strip any powerhead on the market.

Get two kinds. A pair of neon blues. They hang out in the rocks and clean other fish too. Great color. Also, a shrimp goby. There's more than a yellow watchman available that'll bond with a pistol shrimp (P.S. - make sure your rock is firmly seated on the bottom, not the sand).

The shrimp gobies (check out liveaquaria.com for options) will not eat shrimp or inverts.
