I'd just buy the goby and add it. How big is the shrimp?

I would try the yellow watchman goby first, and give it a little time to see what happens. If they dont pair up, you can always add another pistol shrimp later to pair with the goby, but no reason to spend money on a pistol shrimp if you already have one that may do what you want.

This shrimp is a bullseye pistol. I have one too got him for a steal at $12!! They have a very low paring rate as they are pretty solitary and have really good eyesight unlike most pistols. Good luck trying to get him paired. I had to get a tiger pistol to pair with my goby.

Yeah, he lives in that rock and never comes out. The tunnel must go deep into the rock.

I'll try out a goby pistol pair. What's the worst that could happen?

Thanks and his heads pink too. He loves that hole though. He only comes out for less than a second to grab a pellet
