It depends on what kind of pistol you get: candy cane or tiger. Just google about which gobies pair with that pistol and a list will come up. It has I be a goby that they would pair with in nature. Don't buy a a pair- it'll cost more. I had a pistol first and let him dig for a week, then bought a YWG. after acclimating, I put the goby in right next to the main opening of the burrow. I had read to do it this way- they paired in literally seconds!! The YWG looked in the hole and the shrimp immediately started making the opening bigger and they've been inseparable ever since.
