I'm not sure I would trust a large star like that with fish that barely get to 2 inches. lol I had a nano fish in my 125g and before long he kinda just got eaten up by the tank. :-(

What kind of gobies did you have in mind? I'm thinking clown gobies or stuff like that. lol Bigger gobies like watchmen would be fine.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Looks good 79.
I really like the rockwork! Don't worry, diatoms really blow, but as long as your source water for changes is good, they will pass.
What kind of LED's are those? They look great. One of my next projects, moving from T5 to LED.
