Hey everybody, I am new to this website and I was wondering, how many watchman gobies would be able to fit in a 55 gallon tank, I am thinking about a few different species such as yellow, pink spotted, common, and orange spotted. I don’t have the tank yet but I will soon. I will also have a bicolor blenny and a fanged blenny. Correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty sure fanged blennies (Midas, striped, etc) can live with comb tooth blennies (lawnmower, bicolor, sailfin, etc). So please let me know

Hey Mr. Goby, and welcome to TRT! Mr. Goby huh.... :unsure: ......can see where you got THAT moniker.😁
I love the little darlings......mind their own business, FOR THE MOST PART, and just go about their business. I have a 210 gallon softies reef, and they're the predominate species in there.

THAT BEING SAID.....generally Gobies don't play well with other gobies, unless mated pairs....they tend to be very territorial as well. I have a large system COVERED in rock and over grown with Corals as an escaped from territorial issues....tough to find each other. Blennies.....yup, like them too, but they can be BUTT HEADS!

In a 55 gallon, perhaps a 'Diamond Goby', and a 'Yellow Watchman' Goby/shrimp combo would work, as well as a 'Lawnmower' Blennie, and MAYBE a Bi-Color. Kinda live in different areas, and may not object to one another.
The 'Watchmans and Diamond Gobies' require a sand bottom, both for security as well as gathering food by 'sifting' the sand.

Hope great things lie ahead for Ya,
Hack

I would do a soft sand bottom, I have done all of my research and already know the requirements for the gobies. But thank you I will keep that in mind. Have a great day
