Hello,
I have a Alpheus Ochrostriatus that was pair with a Amblyeleotris Wheeleri

The Wheeleri is not with us anymore (jump, my fault), he's now alone.

But before he jump my Yellow clown goby was in the same aquarium, without any issue

Since then I remove My yellow clown goby and I only have the shrimp with some sexy shrimp.
I'm about to re introduce my yellow clown goby at some point.

But I also want to introduce other fish:
Masked Goby

and Peppermint Goby

I would like to know if you had any experience, story, concern about the compatibility with these small goby, I fear they go in its cavern and my pistol shrimp will snap them.
The fish are currently in quarantine.

I have two tiger goby Tigrigobius macrodon in 45gal along with 2 tiger pistol shrimp, yellow clown goby, yasha goby, blue neon goby, and tangaroa goby. They all doing great, no issue. Tiger goby hang around crevices near entrance of the pistol shrimp but never enter into shrimp den. Haven’t witness any aggression between tiger pistol shrimp with other gobies

Thank you,
I had Panda goby at some point and my Wheeleri eats them then the shrimp scavenge a bit then the hermit crab took the rest.

But those Masked Goby and Peppermint Goby are bigger, so worried less but still scared of my last adventure.

Thank you for sharing!
