3 Gobies in 120g?

Currently I have 2x Yellowhead Sleeper Goby (Blue cheek goby) which have decided to become a mated pair.

I also have 1 japanese pistol shrimp and 1 other pistol shrimp (maybe, I've never seen it since I put it in).

I would really like to get a yellow clown goby and release him into the pistol shrimp burrow in hopes of having them form the symbiotic relationship.

Q: Can a mated pair of yelowhead gobies get along with a yellow watchman goby or other?

Q: Can Pistol shrimp hurt me when they snap their appendages?

Thanks!

Sleeper Gobies should be O.K with yellow watchman gobies. Their sand-sifting activity might cave-in the watchman's burrows, but it's usually not fatal.

Do you want a Yellow Clown, or a Yellow Watchman goby to host with your pistol? Clown gobies do not host with pistols, but Watchmans do. It might take a while though.

Oops, I meant to say watchman. I will change that


I have a mated pair of these:

Would I be ok with any kind of watchman goby or shrimp goby? Any particularly passive ones?
