Yeah this was one the reasons what put me off getting a pistol as i love wrasses and want leadt one or maybe 2.and im thinking what would happen if wrasse dive bombed down into sand bed right into a tunnel.but im guessing/ well hoping they all work out where each other is and sort it out between them.
But wrasses and blennies i love the look/ activity of these guys ^_^
That would been entertaining to watch ^_^I actually had the opposite happen. My shrimp was being overly industrious one night and accidentally dug up the wrasse! Never saw any reaction from the fish, I assume she just kept sleeping, but that shrimp teleported back to his home base faster than you'd believe! He stopped making that area of the tank part of his rounds.
That would been entertaining to watch ^_^
Shrimp be like what the heck this wrapped in a cocoon.
I just been watching one my hermits come down off the rocks onto sand bed and he slowly walking towards where pistol/ goby was then all sudden turned around and went away from goby.im thinking the hermit couldn't see shrimp down hole he dug but maybe hermit sensed it idk.either way he back tracked ^_^
Wow thats amazing.well not for the snail ( poor little bugger) but goby says here go take this snail and shrimp says thanks but no thanks lets just leave it and stop bring me sh## lolThe odd time I've had a hermit end up in the goby/shrimp cave, the shrimp has simply tossed it back out. Things that crawl around don't make very good tunnel reinforcements! I had a goby that would actually grab snails and drag them into the cave, for what purpose, I'm not sure, but the shrimp would just toss them out again. Funny to watch because sometimes this "arguing" over the snail could go on for several rounds. Goby and Pistol Shrimp combos are one of my favorites and I have a pair in both my 10g and 50g. And for your original question, I don't have classic cleaner shrimps but I do have two peppermints and there has never been an issue between them.
