diamond goby

    My goby decided he didnt like my new coral. Am i gonna need to move it to the top of a rock? or just do some serious work on moving sand around to prevent this? it already started to open, until the sand came on it.

    I got a diamond goby to sift my sand in my 75gal almost two months ago. The last I saw him was May 24th; after vacuuming the sand, he was re-digging his home cave under a big flat rock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K5O4E021T0 Here he is so obviously he's healthy, he was sifting and...

    Hello Everyone! I was hoping I could get someone to look over my tank I intend on building in the next few weeks. Absolutely everything can change, except it has to have my blue-spotted jawfish in it. No piece of advice will be overlooked. I plan on stocking it with softies/lps and perhaps...

    Hello, my diamond goby took a dive out of the tank 2 days ago (friday night) and I heard him flopping around so I was able to rescue him, at least for the moment. once he was in the tank he just went to his usual spot and slept. I thought that is a big fall for a little guy and hoped he was ok...

    So as the title says. Can these two Gobies pair? The reason I ask is that I haven't heard or seen my pistol shrimp since I moved. I have seen the Hi Fin goby that it was paired with. Usually I would see both together. Well it seems from watching my tank for a while that the Hi Fin goby and...

    I have a question about my diamond goby for anyone who has experience with them. I have had to go in my tank to level out the sand numerous times, but last night was the worst. Overnight my goby has taken the sand from the whole front of my tank and made a huge pile around a rock with a cave on...

    Well.....i started off with a 55 gallon reef tank that was going well for 3 months. I started adding new fish and corals. Usually i would ask alot of questions about the fish or coral that im interested in before i make my purchase, alot of people in the LFS that i go to seem very knowledgeable...

    We purchased our diamond goby about a week ago and he has made himself perfectly at home by building an elaborate series of tunnels throughout the entire tank. He also likes to pick up our smaller crabs in his mouth by the backs of their shells and move them to an area of his liking within the...

    Hey guys, im a little worried. I have had a diamond goby for 6 days, 3 of these i have not seen my diamond goby. I acclimated him well and for three days he was cleaning sand very nicely. He started to dig holes under rocks and since i noticed these holes/homes i have not seen him. The rocks...

    Well how do I begin. I wanted to introduce everyone to Gibbles, my Diamond Goby. I just purchased him last night. However, he seems to be missing. He is nowhere to be found in the tank. I've even checked the overflow and sump. I have the glass lids on and while there are small gap openings...

    im sure some of you guy will disagree but i have read some articles that say the goby will be agressive if he doesnt have enough food or feels threatened. i lost a long nosed butterfly just randomly no spots all his fins just came up missing found him under the rocks. then a week later one of my...

    Afternoon, I'm going today to get my first fish. After 15 weeks of cycling and a week of hermit crabs doing nicely. Do I get the Diamond Goby and get him situated for a bit then get the Clownfish? The thought here is I'm working through the 4th stage of the cycle, the green hair algae. Got...

    So 3 days ago we got a diamond goby to help clean the sand bed and add some life to our tank. It is doing a amazing job and my sand bed has never looked better. But the problem is my tank is super cloudy with the sand. I have never had this problem before. The sand is cycled and has been in the...

    Hi Everyone! I just recently added a diamond goby to my tank, and have a question. Since I put him in, he's definitely been doing a great job keeping the sand sifted and clean, but he's also making the water really cloudy. Does anyone have any suggestions for clearing the water? I'm...

    I am real bummed. My Diamond Goby jumped sometime between last night and this morning. I had the back and sides protected with egg crate, but not the sides. He was my favorite also with a ton of personality. I was concerned as he has been much more active all around the tank in the last few...
