I don't think so. They stay on the bottom of the tank and sift the sand. They do have symbiotic relationships with pistol shrimp. The clown goby hangs out in corals. I believe generally acropora.

Are you talking about a yellow clown goby or a yellow shrimp goby? Neither one is known to form a symbiotic relationship with corals or anemones. However, the yellow clown goby will often be seen "pearched" on corals like toadstools. As fluff mention, the yellow shrimp goby will pair with a pistol shrimp. I have a pair in my tank and it is an awesome relationship to watch.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

clown gobies ( some are yellow ) dont offically host. hosting would be if one or both of the animals are intentionally doing something to benefit the pair. clown gobies do perch on corals very often. mine likes branchy corals like montipora digitata and xenia, but i have seen him in every coral in my tank including mushrooms
