I'll need to check properly tomorrow when I have access to my books at work, but that sure looks like a Cryptocentrus species to me, thus a true shrimp-associated goby. I'd just put it down to the size difference, and possibly the need to acclimate the shrimp and goby to each other.

My pistol was less than an inch big he was a tiny fellow my gobie is way over 4 inches big or more I believe he just thought he was a snack. but the funny part about it is he knows he did something wrong....LOL... He comes out everytime I am buy the glass to visit reguardless of what going on in the tank. Yesterday he just kept poking his head out and looking at me like oops my bad...lol.. But then there where times where he would not even come out.... I guess he know he ate something he wasn;t suppose to. Fish are strange...lol

wow, already?

I put my goby and shrimp in on Sunday.
I have yet to see either of them. That's an expensive $60 for me.. for fish I never see. I *think* I heard the shrimp the first night, but never again. And the goby, who knows if he's still around. As soon as I dropped them in, they swam to different rocks on either end of the tank, then disappeared.

If the goby is dead, I blame it on my Hermits... one of them is just way too big. The Randall's goby looks (looked?) like this: Randall's Goby

I'm a bit upset too.. if I don't hear/see anything by Sunday, I'm getting a female Randall's... (the first one was a male). Just in case he's still in there, they could pair up.

Yeah after I acclimated the Pistol for more than an hour and a half he when quickly found his spot and started to burrow his home. Then the gobie saw him and that was the end of my Pistol. I called my LFS and told them what happened they where shocked about what happened I told then no worries about what happened.I figure if I stay with my Gobie I would try one more time with another Pistol Shrimp at least 2 inches bigger. That why he would not eat him to big to fit in his mouth.... If that fails I'll be done with him and start over with a brand new pair.
