Which Goby for Pistol Shrimp????

I'm trying to decide which Goby to pair with a Pistol Shrimp? I kind of like the Yellow Watchman, Yashia or Orange Spotted Goby. What do you guys suggest? And Why

I might suggest a pick spotted goby. I just like this goby better than the others. Any of the watchman gobies will do.

But also keep in mind that while these pairs are common, there is a chance that they will not pair up. It's like one of those hit or miss situations, but with the success rate a little higher than other things. I've heard that yellow watchman gobies and pistol shrimp pair up the best. I think watchman gobies in general pair up the best with pistol shrimp.
