I have an aurora goby, and a Randall's tiger pistol shrimp. They have paired quite nicely.
I have heard the popping occasionally, it he hasn't bothered any other inhabitants. My sand is forever moving however, he is QUITE busy.

Oh very cool! Does your shrimp make a big mess of your tank? Does he cover corals with sand! :/

Anyways thanks for your input! How big is your goby and pistol shrimp?

I have no sand bed corals, so no. I have an Afro colony, and that's about it for now. Adding things slowly to keep everything stable. But he moves a good amount sand regularly!

I just spot feed a bit of algae, pellets, and whatever meaty food the fishes get every other day. (turkey banter works WONDERS)

Sounds nice I was going to get a tiger pistol and i forget what goby...but I just got myself a coral banded shrimp and a yellow watchman. That'll be good enough. The goby doesn't need a friend lol.

Ya i really like coral banded shrimp but i wanted to add other non agressive shrimp and didnt want them killed. So i guess non agressive pistol is the next best thing!
