Is this doable?

I was thinking I need more sand turn over. I have 5 damsels all around 1.5 inches. I am wondering if therre are and shrimp gobys along with the shrimp, that will be okay in my tank. I am thinking the shrimp should protect the goby, or is this just a bad thing waiting to happen? Anyone have personal experience or any input on this?

I dont know about the shrimp part but I have two gobies that turn mine over every day. The goby part is good for turnover.

Yeah, I was looking for the shrimp to protect the goby from the damsels.

One of the toughest fish in my tank is my pink spotted Goby. He does not let you pick on him. Downright mean.

Yeah, that guy is Semi-aggressive, so maybe I should go on the safe side and find one that is Semi-aggressive. Thanks for the info.
Hmmm, I am kind of looking at two of these and 1 pistol, think that might cause problems?

Dont think Damsels are considered "passive"

Yeah, thanks for bringing that one up, I missed it! Back to my search....ACK! Saltwaterfish.com hardly has any livestock, and liveaquaria.com doesn't have the pistol shrimp! LOL! Oh, I guess that gives me more time for opinions and research.
