In my experience, the emeralds stay up on the rocks where they can more conveniently kill corals (lol) while the pistol will bury itself under the rocks, in the sand. Shouldn't be a problem.

Experience with them getting your coral? My emerald just looks for hairline all day and night. This pistol shrimp has completely rearranged my sand bed. Also has buried my Duncan coral.
