Anyone have experience with adding a second shrimp goby...

... to an already established single shrimp goby and pistol shrimp? I originally bought two shrimp gobies and a pistol shrimp but one died before they met up and formed the group and I've always wanted to try and throw in another one to see a pair of gobies guarding the lair!!!

I had a randalls, and joker both with pistol shrimp probably for the past 2 to 3 years in a 60g Cube. Each had a side of the tank with their own cave systems. Worked out fine til my serpent stars went on a killing spree not long ago. Only the joker now lives, but it worked out, no grouping though. Definitely need seperate territory's. I've seen tanks in the south shore with 6 or more gobies together, but at young ages.
