Considering they both live in a tank, (sorry if this is a stupid question, just wondering) won't the gobby realize they're the only ones in the tank and not defend outside the tunnel?

No They will still pair up. It is just their instinct and since some gobies are not very good diggers they will pair up with the pistol shrimp to have a nice big home to sleep in.

How deep does the sand bed have to be?

I have 1 inch - 1.25 inches of sand bed. Mine was a baby though. I would recommend at least .75 inches of sand bed. The bigger he is the more sand probably. They can get up to 2 inches long (depending on the type, mine was a tiger pistol shrimp). He will use live rock for the roof of his caves most of the time.
