I just bought a Goby and a red banded pistol shrimp. The shrimp has gone AWOL. Is it ok if I get an other one to have a better chance of them pairing up?

A second pistol shrimp is fine ... just dont get another goby ... i have 2 pair in my tank gobies dont like each other much .. the bigger goby dont even let my other goby out of his cave .. im now not sure my smaller goby still alive or not . I may try to take out the bigger goby trade for a smaller ... it so nice to see diff pair chilling amo.

How long have you had them? You should wait since it's likely the shrimp is just making a burrow. Sometimes it takes a long time for the goby and shrimp to be seen together.
