Shell dwellers are pretty easy to breed (so I've heard), so it would be more of a challenge to go for Bumblebee Gobies!
You will be trying to breed them like the rest of your fish, right?

I like this profile on them: http://badmanstropicalfish.com/profiles/profile59.html
It says they need 20 gal, but idk, If they only grow to 2 inches 13 gals should be enough for them alone IMO.
They are brackish, keep that in mind!

HTH!

I voted for shellies, but it was really a tough call. I think either species tank would be awesome and you would be happy either way.

I vote for shell dwellers just because of the tank size.

bumble bee gobies are cool lookin but not all that exciting. as where the shell dwellers are really funny to watch. i had ghost shrimp in my tank for a while and they were sooo cool to watch look at this tank it should help u make up your mind

Ghost shrimp are ok, but they seem too much like food for other fish. I'd rather have a shrimp that can stand salt in thier water. Anyone know of any?

Ghost shrimp, as far as I know, do pretty well in salt.

Question...

What are shell dwellers? I've heard they're a type of cichlid, but have never seen them.
