Pistol Shrimp question


I have what I think is an Alpheus formosus or Larger Blue Legged Pistol shrimp. It seems to also be called a Caribbean Pistol Shrimp. He's a bit larger than 2" and has dug some pretty large tunnels under the rock.

I'm curious if you've heard of this type of pistol successfully pairing with a Goby? I have a Yellow Watchman Goby in quarantine and I'm wondering if it's worth trying to get them to pair up.

I don't have a picture of my pistol, but here's an online photo:
