    I'm not sure Yellow Watchman Gobies pair with Pistol Shrimp. I think usually it's the smaller gobies. Maybe someone else has information on this. If they will pair up they will find each other once in the tank, however it may be on the side or in the back of your tank where they won't be visible.

    Lots of youtube videos with watchman gobies and paired up shrimp. It's possible. :Cheers:

    just a little advise, a pistol is a BAD idea I just got mine out in the move, there are fine when they are small but, as you know thing's grow. they DO have the ability to crack your tank. don't make my mistake and think they will pairup, mine never did. do some research on them first and gl....

    While it is possible for Yellow Watchmans to pair with a pistol,it dont happen all that often.

    My yellow watchman paired up with my fire shrimp. He wouldnt let anything get close to it. I think i even have a video of it cleaning the goby.

    Aww that sucks. My pistol was first paired with a clown goby, but the goby died, and the firefish took its place. They've been inseparable since!
