No. Many here keep the two species together with no problems. Larger tanks and lots of LR help.

Yellow watchman goby and royal gramma. The only way a CBS will catch a fish is if it is injured or has some sort of disease that affects it's swimming.

My CBS caught my bi color blenny within min of adding it to the tank. I had to poke at it with a dowel to get him to let go.
The blenny was healthy just new... after about a week I found the CBS eating the blenny one morning... The CBS was removed from the tank.. I know guys who have them and they are great in there tanks... Like with anything in the hobby not all things are the same.
