They should eat prepared foods

Gobies, damsels, clownfish. If you are looking for a sand sifting goby, check out the banded dragon goby, tiger wardi, or jawfish. They only grow to a few inches and they are comical when sifting sand. Just understand that they will def make caves and elaborate tunnels under your rocks and sand. That being said, be ready to wake up everyday to a new sand landscape and make sure your rocks are together pretty solid (dont want one falling and crushing him).

i'm thinking of getting some pistol shrimps and one or two gobies. i know the symbiosis relationships between the two species. if i get more shrimps than gobies, are the shrimps going to have problem finding food since they're "blind"?

so far, i have been hearing about the watchman gobies. are there any other gobies that will work with pistol shrimps? any recommendations on which shrimps i should start with?

The only bad thing about damsels is that the older they get the meaner and more terratorial they get. I would suggest a clown and a pink spotted goby.

I wouldnt necessarily say that clownfish (anemonefish) are damsels. They are closely related and i believe they are of the same family, but they arent the same. They do still fortunately share some good traits (hardy, easily adjustable to new environments, willingness to eat almost anything).
