The Hi Fin Red Banded Goby is also referred to as the Striped Goby, or the Blackray Shrimp Goby.
I believe it is a mated pair... they were hiding in the same rock at the LFS. They still hadn't found each other when I went to bed.

Umm... a pretty big disturbance

...I was planning on finishing my lights today... no such luck... my bottom tank gave way... so I now have Rubbermaid tubs as my sump... I think my fish might be dead too... thank cooled down a fair bit. Also with all the disturbance of the sand moving it into my new sump, now I can't see 1" into my tank. I'll post again on Wednesday at the latest.

Aww that sucks but I guess it's better for it to happen in the beginning than after your tank is fully stocked and all set up. Hopefully they'll still be ok.

It was an old tank... also the Styrofoam wasn't underneath it properly and ended up putting pressure on the edge pushing it away from the bottom glass.

The water is cleared up a bit... I believe that both fish are dead... I blame the LFS for the first fish to die (she squeezed the fish in the net to stop it from flopping around in the net...) but the second I believe was because of the accident.
