Shrimp gobies with shrimp?

Do any of you have these paired in your tank? I have been looking into them but wondered how practical it would be, don't want to get critters that will not thrive. 220 gallon tank, inverts and just a few fish and cleaner shrimp right now. Thanks

It all about luck! If they find a nice cozy home at the front of the tank like mine then there great and a real kick to watch but if they go to the back you will never see them. Here is mine pare

They are so cute. Do you have the one pair? Do you know if different goby/shrimp pairs get along?

I have a pink spotted shrimp goby and a tiger pistol shrimp I believe it is and they have never met in the 3+ years they have been in the same tanks. Some pistols will hook up with specific gobies so be sure to get the pair that have a better chance of matching up.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
