  1. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    I have a 40B with 1/2 BB and 1/2 substrate (back 1/2 is BB w/ a powerhead blowing across it). I'm upgrading to a 75 acrylic and seriously thinking of going the BB Route. My concerns are: (1) Watchman goby who doesn't burrow. He like holes in the rocks. (1) Yasha Goby and Pistol pair that...

    Just replaced my Diamond Watchman Goby on Tuesday and he immediately dissapeared and I have not seen him since and now it is Thursday.

    I have a 38 gallon reef with 40 pounds of sand with a yellow watchman goby and cleaner shrimp. I was wondering if I could add pistol shrimp of some kind and not have to worry about constant fighting.The cleaner shrimp is always at the top of the glass on one of my powerheads and at night he goes...

    What type of goby would suit the role of simply cleaning the sand and eating any food that falls to the bottom, but stays relatively small that's about the size of a yellow watchman goby. It has to have great coloration and is active. Im not looking for a burrowing one or one that completely...
  9. Reef Fish
    I am considering getting a Diamond Watchman Goby for my tank. Just a couple of quick questions: 1.) Are they jumpers? 2.) How many can be kept in a 65g tank with just 2 other Oscellaris clowns? 3.) If I could keep more than 1 (no more than 2 total) could they be introduced seperately, at...

    So about 2 weeks ago I added a pink spotted watchman goby to my 180g tank. I also have a algae blenny blue tang and 5 blue/green chromis. I decided to buy a tiger striped pistol shrimp to become friends with the goby. I keep the goby well fed with flakes pellets and mysis shrimp. When i added...

  14. General Reef Discussion
    I recently picked up a tiger watchman goby from the LFS after checking it out on liveaquaria. I have him in a 55g w/ a 10g sump. He looked like he was doing fine the first couple of days i had him in there, but so far today he's just been sitting on the bottom breathing a bit heavier than...
