Shrimp and Goby

What kind of goby will work together with a pistol shrimp? The shrimp digs a hole for the goby to live in and the goby watches for predators because the shrimp is blind. Can anyone tell me the species of goby and shrimp (if I'm wrong about pistol shrimp) that would do this?

thanks
walter

I have a pistol shrimp and yellow watchman goby pair. They are great, lots of fun to watch. I would highly suggest it.

Here's a list of gobies....

I also have the yellow watchman with my pistol. Had a velvet/oodinium outbreak a few months ago, and they both came thru it with flying colors. They are quite a pair.
