I would say you can. Pistols might be small, but they're nobody's little punk. They've got a pistol for goodness sakes! That pseudo comes too close, and he'll pay for it. Mine hardly ever comes out of the burrow actually, just see him in and out of the burrow opening while he's pushing sand around. It should be fine.

Yeah, they're super fast and will stay in the burrow too most of the time.

Is it best to get a yellow watchman and pistol shrimp at the same time? I have money to get one for now, I was thinking the goby first, read that somewhere about the shrimp doesn't last long without out it

U can get together or separate. I had my pistol for about 2 weeks before I got the goby. That gave the pistol time to start some burrowing. Then when I got the goby, I released him directly next to one of the openings and they paired up immediately. I read to do it that way, and it worked great for me. They've been inseparable ever since.
