I don't know about the goby for sure, but I know the Coral Branded shrimp is very agressive. I had problems with mine eating other shrimp, so I think it might eat your hermits.

Yea i was thinking the same.......but also when i was reading up on them....they are stated to be friendly and capable of being with other shrimp.......i guess people really don't know how to look at this shrimp :) i think ill just hold off for the goby until im 100% sure thanks

i know that it is a very aggressive shrimp species and should be kept alone in a tank, unless your tank is extremely bigger and so you can add different shrimp species but you will still be at risk of losing them.

As for killing fish however, i dont think that would be a problem unless its one exceptional killer ;p
