The pistol will not bother the cleaners unless they go down into his hole looking for troule. Highly unlikely.

And yes, the goby and shrimp can still form a bond, but it ain't a sure thing. it could happen right away or take weeks or months.

So the best bet would be the purchase of the shrimp and just let him do his thing, hoping he'll find one of the gobies? That would be a shame if he stumbled upon of them and killed one :O

The pistol shrimp won't kill your goby(s). But like austinsdad said already.. the pairing up thing isn't surefire.. so even if you gave him all the time in the world.. it still may never happen. But i would say go for it. Even if they don't pair up.. both gobies and pistol shrimp are awesome creatures.
