I have yet to hear my pistol shrimp. I really like the peppermints too. they kinda sway and dance around. they are a bit shy but they at least come out, the pistol I havent seen since I put him in

Yea I think it'd be cool to have a pistol or mantis shrimp in a species only tank. But I certainly wouldn't put either in my current tank lol

i read the only goal the goby plays is kind of a lookout for the shrimp because the shrimps eye sight is crap

I'm not exactly paying attention to what you guys are saying about the shrimp, but as far as the drip stuff goes... I had tried the knot method. Never worked. I made two knots, 3 knots, even tried partially clamping the tubing. I eventually got it to work, but it is WAY to hard to change it, let alone stop and start. I got the things with the knobs, and hooked up my siphon line to it. Even though the siphon line was large, it fit around if I pushed it on enough. It works wonders for me. If you are still looking into the drip stuff, I'd recommend getting the valve with with the knob. (If I remember correctly, you said something about petsmart/petco. I got mine at petsmart while I was getting some filter stuff)
