Wait, instead of a Royal Gramma, I meant a Orchid/Purple Dottyback. They're also called Pseudochromis, right? Would that work? And I saw this cute goby at the LFS yesterday, I forgot it specific name, but it started with a C, looked like a Yellow Prawn Goby, and was shifting sand thru it's gills. Does anybody have any idea what kind of Goby it was?

i suggested a goby and shrimp pair, not a pair of pistol shrimp unless it was a known male/female pair. you can have 1 fish working with 2 shrimp, just as i would asume 2 fish ( a proven male/female pair of goby ) with 2 shrimp would work. however to be clear i suggest 1 goby and 1 pistol shrimp. sorry if i said something confusing.

all gobies can shift sand. prawn gobies are shrimp gobies. sleeper gobies are more of a sand sifting type
