I am a huge fan of this pair for a reef tank, but sadly I truly never have had both! The flaming prawn goby never paired with the candy cane pistol shrimp in my macroalgae tank, but I felt that they would not pair anyways so with the reboot of the tank I am going to give Pistol Pete the rightful partner he/she deserves! Leaning towards a Lagoon Shrimp Goby to add to the tank that Pistol Pete moves into!

Lets see some of your Pistol Shrimp and Goby pairs and what your favorite thing about them is! Also any unique pairs that you want to talk about?

I know there are several other threads talking about what are the best to pair together so if you want to chime in any of that information that would be great too!

Lets talk about that symbiosis!

Great photo! I've actually never had a goby/pistol pair.

Is your Pistol a tiger pistol? than any of the bigger gobies like the watchman should pair up. MY yellow watchman and pistol got so big that they got rehomed to the 180 display at the LFS! But they were a great pair to watch. Now I have the Yasha gobies, a pair & a candy striped pistol (much smaller than the tiger) in the 30g and a female yasha & candy striped in the 10g.
