  1. Just wondering if a candy cane coral can eat fish. I have a citrinis clown goby, cleaner shrimp, Halloween hermit, and some snails in my tank. Used to have more fish but things went wrong and only my goby is left. I really like that little guy and wondering if he is safe with the candy cane coral I just put in my tank.
  2. I have an established 35L nano with a occy Clownfish and a Fire Shrimp. I am thinking of adding a Goby to help keep the sand clean. Which would be the best Goby to add or would this be overcrowding the tank. I don’t want the clown to become hostile to a small Goby. Thanks in advance

    My biota rainford goby. He likes to eat algae off the sump wall
  4. Hey everyone so I've been on here a while but never documented my DIY 25g since I started it back around march last year, well I regret not documenting it, and lately I've been wanting to start up a smaller tank, so I thought, why not make a thread so I can record it so I can look back on it? I figure this way I can also learn from others and try to keep my questions in at least a lesser amount of threads. So its been official, I took the plunge on buying 14 ibs of BRS reef saver along with some hanna reagent about an hour ago. I made my tank DIY last time, and although I am still interested in doing that since I can tailor it to my needs, Im not the best craftsman wise. So I am currently looking into a couple tanks before I pull the trigger later tonight. it seems I have a couple options Im most interested in; the waterbox 7g or 10g IM nuvo fusion 10 I am a bit torn between the nuvo 10g or waterbox 10g. the fact they are plug and play is a nice bonus, compared to when I did my DIY, as doing a false wall is a bit frustrating when attempting not to shatter acrylic from drilling or scoring. the two are essentially the same price, although the IM nuvo comes with the lid, so I am leaning towards that. How does everyone who has one of these feel about the back chambers? I am currently debating between a Bare bottom tank or at least shallow sand. I never tried a Bare bottom tank and I think I'd really enjoy the look and cleanliness of it since Im already bad at vacuuming my sand in my tank. what do you guys suggest? my planned inhabitant will be either my Rainford's Goby or my Tail Spot Blenny from my 25g. Lately I've seen some random aggression from the blenny towards the Rainford, and Im planning to take one of them out, leaning towards the Rainford. I feel conflicted about putting the rainford in the 10g if its a Bare bottom, since he hasnt taken prepared food (live BBS, frozen, pellet) yet but picks at rocks and sifts the sand. I'm not sure if its refusal of prepared food or rather him being so passive, my other fish take it from him before he has a chance to eat? Besides hopefully the goby once cycled, I do plan to stock with coral, although Im not sure which yet, I know I have a few frags of zoas in my 25 without a home yet, but I also do really like the look of euphillia, and ricordeas. maybe euphillia on the top with zoas and rics mid to low? the lighting will be my finnex 12" Planted+ until I am sure about which Light i want, I am currently thinking of a par LED bulb to hang over, but I might get another nanobox light, just depends what I end up doing, and feels better to me. For my Filtration, I feel like I dont have too much space to play with like I did in the 25g. what would you guys suggest here? I imagine a skimmer would be useful for phosphates, plus a small bio pellet reactor for nitrates, but I am interested to see what others would say instead. maybe purigen and phosguard? not sure yet, but plenty of time to think. Maybe just cut a portion of my chaeto and carry it over, with activated carbon. ~~ anyways Im sure that might be TLDR but thanks everyone who read, I love seeing other peoples journals for reference, and learning from their experiences with their tanks, I'm hoping mine can help someone elses once it matures.
  5. Does anyone know the lifespan of a Yellow Watchman Goby? I’ve had mine now for 7 years. Do small fish like this live over a decade? Thanks! Jim
  6. So my new tank is cycled and has a small cuc already. 10 hermits, 5 turbo snails, and a couple of nassarius snails. I am going to add my first fish in about a week or so. I want to get a pair of clowns (1 black and white and 1 regular ocellaris). A purple firefish. and some sort of Blenny or goby (possibly 2?) its a 20 gallon tank. (Yellow watchman, clown goby, court jester, bicolor, tailspot???) Not sure yet Lol. The pair of clowns are a must, but i am up for suggestions on firefish, blennies, and gobies. I dont want to over stock either, so please let me know what your suggestions are. I would like to get clowns first, but if its a problem then obviously not. Let me know your suggestions please, I am new to this.
  7. Hi all, I stumbled on the forum one day at lunch and it's been a huge help! I have a Fluval M60 that has just finished cycling. I'm looking to get: -Goby/Shrimp pair -Ocellaris Clown -Purple Firefish -Royal Gamma My question is, should I think about forgetting the firefish because of the shrimp goby? Or will I likely be okay keeping the two in the tank together since the firefish is rather peaceful and the shrimp goby stays near the bottom? Thanks in advance!

  9. Hi Fellow Hobbyist, I'm new to the forum, and like to start by saying Hi to all~ I had a Diamond Goby that I bought at a local LFS about 2 min from my house, and brought it home. I temperature acclimated it for 1hr, and then put him in my tank. He seems to be doing fine, coming out during feeding time, moving sand bed from one side of tank to the other, grabbing hermit crabs with his mouth and moving them away from his new home (tunnel). However, after the third day, he didn't come out during feeding. Later in the afternoon, he was dead at the corner of my tank, with the crab feasting. I have a BioCube32, with stock lighting, PH=8.4, Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrate all 0ppm, Salinity 1.025 (although LFS said they tested 1.021). I have a Blue Tang, 2 Clown Fishes, and Fire Shrimp as his tank mate, so nothing aggressive I can see. The only difference I can see that was different from Nemo/Dory acclimation was I only temp. acclimated, and did not drip acclimate. Do you think not drip acclimate a Diamond Goby could have killed after 3 days? Or could there possible be other reasons? I'm trying to figure out what might have cause his death, and hoping someone knowledgeable can guide me so I don't make the same mistake twice. Also, weird question, but would you feel bad taking back to the local LFS and asking for a refund? -Sango
  10. Hello, I'm looking to introduce 3rd (and last) fish for my 20g reef to accompany my pair of clowns. Other inverts: 2 cleaner shrimps, 1 brittle star, 4 CUC snails, beginner corals. Would like to add Emerald crab some day later, maybe some Peppermint to fight Aiptasia too. So for final fish and their availability at my LFS I narrowed my choice to Ecsenius bicolor Amblyeleotris guttata Gobiodon okinawae What would you choose and why? Thank you
  11. Any one have current or pass success with a more exotic goby shrimp pair? Something other then the classic yellow watchman/tiger combo. I'm definitely more of a fan of high fin and dramatically colored gobies but I don't see them paired often. I know that if they are not natural pairing the that makes it unlikely but had anyone have examples of success? Thanks
