    He shouldn't bother them. There are stories out there of them eating small fish, like candy basslets, but I haven't heard of them eating shrimp. I have tried feeding pieces of shrimp and he just shakes his head at it (literally). He's eating frozen silversides (which are about the size of a candy basslet, and possibly why they sometimes eat them). I'd say as long as you keep him fed, and don't try to vary his diet into the shrimp realm, then they'll be safe. I don't have any inverts in with this guy, but in the first picture above, you can see the small six-line wrasse that's in with him. Haven't had any issues with the wrasse.

    Mine didn't. That being said, my shrimp were medium/large size.

    I can't imagine them messing with them. They don't really venture out from their cave, and their mouth is small compared to the size of a clam. Unless you are raising baby clams that are like 1" or less...

    Mine doesn't bother anything other than the silverside that it's fed. Here it is getting cleaned by one of the shrimps awhile back.

    Could you keep one of these with an engineer goby? Or do you think there would be issues? Mine goby moves caves a lot...and turns over the entire sea floor in the process!

    You technically could, but you'll also have an eel that has to move often.

    I had a sandsifting cucumber and eventually decided to get rid of it since every once in awhile, it would cover the hole that the eel was under and the eel would have to move to another part of the tank.

    Sorry, I'm sold out at the moment. And with the ban on Hawaii fish collecting, it may be a while before we get more.

    Yes, but they are also found elsewhere. The golden dwarf moray is endemic to Hawaii.
