Pistol Shrimp and Watchman Goby

So my watchman goby has been depressed for weeks hiding in the rocks not even coming out to eat since i rearranged my tank. he was hosting 2 camel shrimp and 1 disappeared. So uesterday i got him a pistol shrimp. within less than a min he was borrowing under my brain coral and the goby excitedy was right under after him. at one point i had tje pistol and goby borrowing under the brain, my clowns hosting all over tje brain and the spotted blenny watching it all very closely lol.
heres my question. i got up in the morning and it looks like a construction crew had been all over the tank. the pistol borrowwed all under my big rock moving alot of sand. i knew this could happen but will he borrow the whole tank or stick to his new palace? i dont want coral getting buried and dying. BTW all my fish seem to stay in the corner where the pistol is watching intently, hilarious to watch.

The pistol should eventually find a home after he finds one that works good for him.

I have always seen them active in pics and vids so me and you must've chosen the wrong ones haha because I can only see the antennae of mine most of the time! Sometimes he comes, not sure what for maybe when he needs to stretch his legs but he hides alot! I have a bullseye pistol shrimp

Haha, love it! Any chance you can take a pic? I'd love to see Shangri-la underwater.
