    I was wondering if i could add a gobie and a yellow tang to my tank. Would my 6 line wrasse be a problem to a gobie? I had (key word had) a dartfish that was harassed by the wrasse to death and I know that they are somewhat related. I am also wondering if gobies hide a lot or are out and about...

    So I'm looking to replace a High Fin Goby that I had paired with a Randall's Pistol Shrimp. The goby and shrimp paired up almost immediately and then a week later, I lost track of the goby. After a few weeks, I rearranged some of the rock work and found it living under the rocks. I put...

    In a 90 gallon, would it be possible to mix multiple gobies without problems? I know there are a few, such as certain shrimp gobies and others such as clown gobies, that are known to have problems with each other, but would I be able to mix others?

    I put this neato pair of sharknose gobys in my tank about a week ago. Today I was feeding and noticed they are suddenly covered in these white 'bumps' like chickenpox (fishpox?haha). One of them is definitely worse than the other. At first I thought ich but it doesn't look like the ich I...

  13. Livestock Breeding and Propagation
    Hi i have a 38 gallon reef with no fish in it at the moment. It just has some corals, snails, crabs, and a serpent star. I was thinking about attempting to breed some neon gobies. I have read that they are pretty easy to breed. My tank has many caves. So if anyone has any advice im open to it.

    I was reading that Blue Gudgeon gobies have to be feed three times a day is this true? Also is it best to introduce two of them to an aquarium at the same time, because they like to pair?
  15. Reef Fish
    I'm looking into getting some type of goby for my 40g long reef. I'm leaning towards an orange spot goby or a yellow watchman goby, or I guess any other spotted goby or maybe a diamond goby idk. I know that there are sand sifting gobies and shrimp gobies but i can't seem to find any info on...

    My tank had a good number of copepods and amphipods after it had been running for a couple months (constantly out on the rocks and crawling all over the glass) with only a couple shrimp, hermits, snails, and corals. I decided to get a mandarin goby and a scooter blenny a few days ago and have...

    I have had the tank running for about 6 months now..... I have had an aneneome split, and one die, but have not had any other real issues. I have 2 sandsifting gobies who were originally living in harmony, and now one is being aggressive towards the other. The aggressor has grown quite a bit...
