Do you think this sand would be okay in my tank? Would it be alright for a goby/shrimp combo?

I have a wheeler goby and tiger pistol shrimp the only bad thing is when the shrimp decides to dig around the water clouds up. Mine is an established tank but there is still enough fine dust to make it look like a blizzard when my shrimp goes into construction mod. That sand should work fine just make sure you rinse it before adding it. Make sure you have enough rubble in there so it can reinforce it caves.

A watchman will be fine in your tank. Don't get any more fish because one fish in there with a shrimp is enough of a bioload. I feed my shrimp twice a week it has even taken food from my hand, something I wouldn't suggest people doing but I just had to see it it would. Using a tweezers or a bamboo screwier works the best.
