    I dont know the name of the little bugger but, what is the goby that sifts the sand and basically puts it back where he got it. I dont want the ones that swim all over and dive bomb my corals.

    Okay, so a few months ago something happened and we lost all but one of our fish (tomato clown). We never found out for sure what caused it--the corals were fine, all levels tested fine. It was a mystery. Anyway, about three or four weeks ago we added a new goby. He's fine and happy. This...

    I am going to the LFS tomorrow and I have a choice between a watchman goby, diamond goby, orange spotted goby. What do you think is the hardier and better one to have? Keep in mind my last diamond jumped to his death. Is it worth trying with a new one?

And was just wondering what your thoughts on this are... This is not a set in stone thing... I am looking for the comments on them or...

    I had one a long time ago and i haven't had any luck getting one from any of our distributors (or at least the right goby) until now. Finally we just found a new dist. and they have been great, even going as far as stowing one away for next week to be sent. I'm excited about it, anyone have...

    So, i've noticed lots of clams for sale lately, any left? Mine passed away due to my golden head sleeper goby incident. The same mistake will not be made twice. I'd like to buy a crocea or deresa, thanks.

    My tank has been doing great, but bad equipment wise. My skimmer is letting a tiny bit of water over the side of the tank, I fixed it today, but that was after 1/2 an inch of water was lost out of the tank... Oh well, but everything else is good. Here are the fish I have now: 3 chromis, a male...

    I'm working on slowly building up stock in my 46gal tank. In the future, it will be converted into a coral tank, so keep that in mind. Right now, its got about 60lbs of sand, 40lbs base rock, and 20lbs live rock. Inhabitants are a percula clown, a pajama cardinal, 2 cleaner shrimp, a sand...

    I've had my 46gal bowfront up for around 6 months now. Its got a 4" sandbed, and approx 30lbs of live rock. Had it very lightly stocked, with 2 perculas, a royal gramma, lawnmower blenny, and a golden head sleeper goby. Lost all of the fish except 1 of the perculas to a ich outbreak. So, I...

    Now that Im back on track with getting the 150 done, I need to figure out what method to use for keeping calcium up. It is going to be a BB SPS system. I have a good sized sump (about 35g) and the plumbing isnt in yet so I wont have to adapt already existing set ups. What I want is a way of...

    Hi guys- I hear "Sand sifting stars", "sand sifting gobies" etc.- Do any of these guys eat detritus, or are they all copepod eaters? IDEALLY, I'd like a sand sifter or two who ate detritus and NOT copepods as eventually I'd like a goby or dragonette- I have a huge cope and amphi population and...

    I'm trying to put together a list of fish for my 135, shallow sand bed, lots of hiding/swimming areas (only ~120 lbs LR), mostly softie tank. I've never had a reef tank over 40 gal so I'm in a new realm here and would like suggestions. So....if you could start over again (with a 135) what...

    I got a yellow wrasse the other day from an LFS. Looked WAY healthy - Probably was... He was fine for the first whole day... came out at day, went under the sand at night. Ate really well too... quite the piggy. I haven't seen it in like 48 hours. I'm wondering if it could still be under the...

    Just wondering...What are some recommended fish that perform benefits to the reef aquaria? Such as, tangs that eat marco-algae. What species are better than others? Rephrased...What fish would you want in a reef aquaria to preform tasks, aside from movement and color? Thanks, Brian
