I added a hi-fin red banded after I already had a YWG and a red-head goby. They both teamed up and bullied the hi-fin, kept him hiding in the rocks all of the time. It was pretty bad. I ended up trading the YWG and red-head to my LFS for store credit.

Yes, you can mix gobies. The key is not to mix same type of gobies. I mean you can mix a firefish (swimmer), neon goby (both stays on rocks and swims), a clown goby (stays on rocks and corals) and a yellow watchman goby (bottom).

 

Yellow watchmans, hi fins, pink bars, yasha haze... all these are shrimp gobies and also stay on the sand. Mixing those is a bad idea in a nano tank.

i think 1 yellow watchmen and a hi fin might be ok because i mean look in the Goby pics in the gallery they are paired up in the same burrow, i just hope mine build the friggin burrow in the front of the tank not on the back where i cannot see them is there anyway to keep them from doing that, i tried to get the lr up against the back of the tank as tightly as possible but there is still some space anything i can do here

Unless you have a gigantic watchman goby, cleaner wont fit into his mouth so he cant eat the shrimps. I kept very time marine ghost shrimps with my watchman goby and goby didnt touch them. He was even letting them to clean his mouth
