Yellow goby and pistol shrimp?

Hello all, I'm getting a yellow goby in next Thursday as my final fish and was also going to add a pistol shrimp but should I wait to add the shrimp or do it at the same time?

I can't say what is best but I can tell you I just added my pistol shrimp and in less than 12 hours they were moved in together and happy as can be. My goby has been in my tank for several months prior. From what I have read I don't think it matters when they are added.
